I noticed that, however I do not have the bandwitdh to track several trees
simultaneously. Will do that on a high bandwidth machine and create a diff.

This is probably it. The raw image is just a bit over 4 megs. Is there a
chance that this will change upstream? Also a warning would be nice while

Size problem? At least it's not triggered by the yaboot limitation because
the image is similar in size to zImage.chrp which would be around 1.8 megs.
