[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Bootmenu updated, experimental n800 support

I have updated bootmenu initfs flasher. This version comes with slightly 
newer bootmenu version from garage svn and has experimental support for 
n800 device. It still works on N770 of course. For N800 only newer 
2006-51 firmware (the downloadable one) is supported.

As I don't have N800 it is just blind test. Many things can go wrong so 
please try it only if you don't mind and know how to recover. It has 
some chance to actually work but who knows :)

Recovery is easy, either backup initfs.orig.jffs created by the script 
or extract original initfs from FIASCO image and flash from PC over USB. 
No data should be lost.

New features:

- uses optional bootmenu.conf for easier and safer customization, see 
included example
- new 'off' item for turning device off, doesn't work when on charger

I am very interested how it goes on N800 so please report. Thank you :-)
