[SLOF] [PATCH slof 00/10] ext4, gpt, LE ELF
aik at ozlabs.ru

This is to make 'boot disk:2,boot\zImage' work when /dev/sda2 is
rather huge ext4 partition with a little endian zImage.
Found few issues on the way.
10/10 is the most questionable - what is the right of doing it?
By default SLOF looks at ELF, that says "0 is base address" but
SLOF itself claims 16KB in slof/fs/claim.fs (grep for
MIN-RAM-RESERVE) so the images have to be loaded elsewhere but
Please comment. Thanks.
Alexey Kardashevskiy (10):
disk-label: Prepare for extenting
disk-label: Support Linux GPT partition type
disk-label: Try ext2 filesystem when booting from GPT partition
ext2: Prepare for extending
ext2: Rename group-desc-size
ext2: Read size of group descriptors
ext2: Read all 64bit of inode number
ext2/4: Add basic extent tree support
elf64: Add LE64 ABIv1/2 support for loading images to given address
[HACK] boot: Force loading images at 64MB
