Description George Thomas 2002-05-03 09:22:38 EDT
Description of Problem:

Currently both fconfig and FIS directory take an entire FLASH erase block each.
On systems where the FLASH block size is large (iPAQ => 0x40000 bytes!), this
is tremendously wasteful.

It should be possible to combine these data into a single FLASH block.

This is now in place, with the FCONFIG data being positioned at the end
of the FIS directory block.  Currently this behavior must be selected
by CDL (not default).
