I'm looking into this because of the x600 breakage. So this patchset
increases the SPL image size because all the environment "features"
are now also available in SPL (please correct me if I'm wrong). In
the case of x600 (IIRC), env is not used at all in the SPL stage.
Perhaps it would be possible to (optionally) remove the environment
support completely from SPL/TPL in such cases?
