It fits well under the 256kB of flash. And yes, I should think its about
time they got worried. What's not to be worried about? Getting Bochs BIOS
to run should be pretty trivial on just about every board LinuxBIOS
Contributions are welcome. It's by no means a completed product. And we'd
like to keep Boch's BIOS as generic as possible so it can stay in their
sources. My view is we have two very good projects that are beautifully
complimentary. The improvement of each individually need not stop now.
