Storage requirements for OpenBMC VirtualBox/Ubuntu build

Still have not generated a clean build yet,
in the //Windows 10//Virtualbox//Ubuntu 16.04.4// world.

I have enclosed a log of the several Warnings and then the final Error,
for someone to point out what might be wrong here.
I turned on line numbering in my text editor and it says 
there are 630 lines in this file, so optimal commentary
should be addressed to particular line numbers.

(I am a firmware guy, sometimes a linux device driver guy,
 perhaps more attuned to the contents of AST2400 and AST2500.
 By the way, anyone know where the detailed datasheet PDFs
 of those 2 chips may be downloaded ?
 No response from Aspeed so far.)

I accidentally broke the u-boot recipe recently whilst resolving other bugs[1], but the break has been fixed[2]. Try updating your local branch and building again.

Hope that helps,
