You could map these into eCos like concepts:
Hard code -> Hard coded
command line -> Redboot cfg block parameter?
FIS Directory -> FIS Directory!
I find it interesting that Linux guys consider FIS directory usable,
which is against what Bart was saying.
Putting that point aside, it does show that Linux considers it
necessary to have multiple ways of configuring the partitions, so
maybe eCos also needs multiple ways of configuring partitions.
