Add Nand Pre-Bootloader support in Barebox
Add support of Nand Pre-Bootloader to Barebox
; Summary: Add support of Nand Pre-Bootlaoder to Barebox
; Proposer: Jean-Christophe PLAGNIOL-VILLARD
== Description ==
It would be nice to have in barebox a Nand Pre-Bootloader Framework.
This Framework will have to be support the following constrianxs:
- small (less than 2 KiB Freescale SoC require this)
- support Bad Block
- nand type detection
- compressed barebox
The feature will have the target to boot a barebox than can fit in the first
block of the Nand. As the first block is bad block free certified by the manufacturer.
This barebox will have enough feature to boot the board and have the failsafe update.
Then barebox will use modules - stored in an other partition - to load more feature.
This will result with a nand boot bad block free.
