Request for Comments and Review: ARM Softboot Loader Specification
 
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello fellow Ubuntu developers:
I've been working on a specification to help resolve booting
difficulties on the ARM architecture, and I wanted to run it by the list
to make sure it meets everyones needs, and that as a whole we're overall
happy with said design.

Summary

Provide a softboot loader for ARM to address outstanding issues with the
wide variety of methods used to boot ARM devices, in a similar manner to
that does to support ps3. Such a softboot loader would be installed on
system flash or trusted boot media, to sufficiently enable the system to
boot from more common devices (USB sticks, optical drives, hard drives,
etc.).

as i said on IRC already, it would be nice if the "dietlibc vs. uclibc"
paragraph could also take klibc into account (more than in just a
footnote to uclibc as it does now), since this is the default we are
using atm as a cut down libc option.
this paragraph should have a full subsection for klibc and explain why
you dont want to go with the default (if you dont) and what the
advantages and disadvantages (beyond extra maintenance we would have to
do for one of the currently proposed libs) are.

ciao
