Maybe, for consistency's sake, have a look what the rest of the bunch
uses ( not that there is a lot though ) - for afb-based graphics boards
( like the Sun Elite3D series ) there's afbinit which loads the firmware
image. No idea if that conforms to anything but it's the only standalone
firmware loader I can think of right now.

have fun
