Hi Luka,

i'll send Daniel a pullrequest as soon as i have time to put it onto my
git server (was only a local git repository i did the patching). Thanks
for pointing this out.

The old filesize is (in my compilations) 185572 Byte, the New one is
188984. So the size differs in roughly 3,5KByte. It's even before the
normal boot partition wich is at 0x80020000 (wich should be ~200KByte).
