Thanks for the suggestion.
Will be implemented as is (perhaps with a different syntax).
ncr=symbios can be added too for symbios compatible boards,
since 'generic' should preclude the driver from using any vendor
specific feature.
A boot fail safe option exists in the latest version (safe:y) and is
as safe as it can be (I think).
