/* This utility makes a bootblock suitable for the SRM console/miniloader */

/* Usage:
 *    mkbb <device> <lxboot>
 * Where <device> is the name of the device to install the bootblock on,
 * and <lxboot> is the name of a bootblock to merge in.  This bootblock
 * contains the offset and size of the bootloader.  It must be exactly
 * 512 bytes long.
