OK...it does take an age though, since it builds various toolchains
before it will even build coreboot. I'm going to talk to them about
why they can't use 'normal' toolchains. Anyway, I'll add it in and see
how it looks.

Do you want me to try the DockerFile thing first, or is having a
download OK for now? What do you think about doing a docker thing for
nikia_rx51 ?
