If I can put the original copy in RO blocks and use some sort of unionfs
to make it RW, and even better, to export it to Linux easily, then it
may be a way to go for me, too. Meanwhile I have to use what's already

IOW you (and/or people you know) do have means to change the microcode?
E.g. some documentation, tools (assembler?) or something like that?
Is it something you could make available to me? I'd be interested in
hacking (at least) the NPE-A HSS microcode, though at present, without
any docs, the amount of work needed is prohibitive.

BTW different boards can supply the microcode using different means.
