    Thanks, I suspected most of that. But I have not see simpleboot in
Linus's tree yet,
    so I have to back port the patch from the paulus tree and that makes
it harder to just try it.

    I am correct in assuming that if I have my .config otherwise
properly setup for initramfs that
    it is going to merge the kernel, dts, and initramfs into a single
image ?

    and is initramfs the plain or initrd target the correct one for
initramfs ?
