Excellent!  I am using it right now, and will write up some
instructions for how to put Sardine on the MMC.

Hopefully, we can just distribute a modified initfs so that people can
just flash it.  Or even make it an official feature of our default
initfs.  Would you be willing to license your code with the GPL?

Also, I already have a small UI improvement suggestion: what about
always showing the boot menu, not only when you hit the MENU key?  I
tend to miss the window where the key needs to be pressed all the
time.  Maybe the menu could be shown when the root device is "ask"?
