Ok, I can appreciate that, but how is my QE firmware blob any different from any
other generic binary that this new image format must support? And since this
new format is still a long way from being implemented, I don't see why it should
delay adding support for QE firmware.
The "qe fw" command requires an address, and it takes care of the rest. As long
as this new image format can identify the QE firmware within it and pass the
address of the blob to the "qe fw" command, I don't really care about the rest.
