I'm asking this just see if we bump up in size if it should be to 768k  
or 1M.  While this doesn't directly impact the TQM or XES boards I  
just wanted to get a sense of how much flash people are putting on  
boards today to see if 1M is a burden or in the noise w/regards to the  
size of things.

My desire is if we support a different size on 8536DS that its a size  
other boards would be ok with if they needed to grow.
