Looks interesting (useful functionality). Any idea why the Android folks didn't just go with a standard USB class like DFU?

Any idea if the WindRiver guy credited on this patch (BCC'd) will prepare a submission to the u-boot mainline?

Not much ideas to the motivation, but I hear most android developers
tend to use Eclipse, esp on htc, and the protocol then was fastboot..
mebbe a case for the same..

I don't think anyone else is looking beyond the TI u-boot version at the
moment due to schedule constraints, but from our perspective -> it is
"yet another usb u-boot" implementation for reference
