I think we should have a section in the FAQ/wiki about all these
CrashFree, Virtual DualBIOS and whatnot features...

Each one should be tested by somebody who owns the respective hardware,
and then we document which of those really work if you brick the board
by flashing a non-working LinuxBIOS image (and which don't).

If we can, we should also gather some information about how extactly
they work internally (software-only, hardware-based, two chips,
splitting one chip in two (virtual) halves etc.).

This will be very useful for lots of people, I presume...
