If you want to do a board with soldered on ram then use the XO-1.5 board 
rather than the XO-1 board. Its vx855 based so it won't mess up any GX2 
people.  XO-1.5 boards are in production and in the wild.  If someone 
wants one then you can fill out an app on the contributors program and 
we send you one.


cc: me if you apply.

The cots people do this by making a fake SPD device and plugging in the 
necessary data.  That way you don't have to restructure the code too much.
