I'm hoping to get to the changes some time this month, but I'm not sure if
I have the time at this moment.
However, I can try to make this a priority if you think it would be useful
for the skiboot team.

This is similar to my initial patch for it:
id:1447881172-16680-1-git-send-email-stewart at linux.vnet.ibm.com

However... we do have the possibility of just using xz compressed
skiboot instead! The hostboot support for this was merged, although
there were going to be some changes made so that it didn't require
changes to PNOR layout.

Elizabeth - are these changes going in soon?
