Actually, to that end, do you have any documentation to go with this
patchset? It'd be kind of nice to know how to use sboot, what security
guarantees it can provide, how to use the toolset, etc etc. Otherwise we're
going to have 20kloc added to our tree that noone knows how to use! Which I
think means some documentation has to be a pre-condition for acceptance.
