What do you have in mind? Boot U-Boot from a Smart Media Card? [Can't
be done.] 

Wolfgang it is code and with code anything can be done I have written code
to read and write to a SmartMedia card from an 8051 8-bit micro.  If I had a
need to read a kernel out of SmartMedia then I could do that just as eaisly.
At 50MHz processor I could even do an effective ECC and still read it out.
It would be just a bit more work from the u-boot perspective and maybe a new
command Eg smboot. 
I have not done this but I can not think of a reason why it cannot be done.
