JHB had patches to increase the size of boot0 to two sectors.  It was at
first deemed unsuitable due to buggy BIOS's.  This isn't really an issue
any more.  After that, other things were done that a single sector was
enough space for boot0.

What do you think about growing boot0 to two sectors to give more room
for features?
