The Developer Board and Developer Board LX have one 2MB flash chip. You can
partition the flash any way you want but here are some recommendations:

The easiest way to change the size of a partition is to edit the file
ptablespec and then do "make images". The file fimage is what gets written
to the flash chip when you do a "./flashit" (except hardware ID and checksum)
so look at the fimage-target in the Makefile for details about the layout.
