It may be something worth considering adding to my nightly builder/boot
testing, but I suspect that's impractical as it probably requires a BE
userspace, which would then mean that the platform can't boot LE.

I suspect that we will just have to rely on BE users staying around and
reporting problems when they occur.

improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
