Thanks for the explanation; this matches what I had kindof figured (but 
I had hoped I was mistaken).

Yes, I have the inclination and I have some time to work on this; what 
sort of tools will I need?  I have the UART cable for serial console, 
and I'm currently using only MicroSD to boot.

I will say that while my employer is willing to pay me to get the little 
box running for the RFI sniffer (GNUradio required), and while I would 
vastly prefer C7 on it, C7 isn't a hard requirement for the sniffer 
project.  It would make it easier for me, and I am the one in charge of 
the project here, since I can then do any dev work on my laptop and just 
build on the C2.  With using Ubuntu it is a bit more difficult for me.  
I would think that this would be a desireable board to support, though, 
but I of course reserve the right to be wrong....

Thanks again!
