Well... I'm of the opinion now that the first patch should be the 
creation of the new script being a copy of the original with the XIP 
conditionals removed from both, plus the makefile changes. That should 
be easy to verify that nothing changed result wise, and then additional 
patches could bring XIP efinements on top without disturbing the non-XIP
