I don't need a framebuffer on boot, but once loaded would I be able to
insmod the epiafb module and get that working? If that is the case, the
boot sequence can be anything...
Though, I'm wondering if the modifications you've made are
(specifically the epia800.config) are compatible with an elf filo
payload? The add action commands seem to run after the commands that
concatenate the linuxbios image file with its payload.. so I'm somewhat
at a loss as to what to flash the chip with. If you know what I mean.
