I had done configuration header based OMAP3 boot[1] once upon a time, 
but serial boot straight to kernel, we need a second that gives control 
there.. could be done, have'nt heard it done + I dont directly see a 
customer usage model for it ("ROI for investment of time") - so doubt 
any investment was done.

CH was the closest I could get to avoiding bootloaders in it's entirety. 
but the level of interest fell off when there was no viable usage model 
for the same.
