The size alone is not the reason. As already said, I'm not convinced
that the approach you use is ultimately the right one (and Andrew
seems to agree, at least to some degree). And then, looking at your
track record, apart from some kexec (and even older tool stack)
work there hasn't been much you've been doing earlier particularly
with the kind of fragile initial boot code. Hence I think the only
viable route for you to get MB2 code merged is to just add it
_without_ largely re-writing all sorts of other code. Once that
happened we can then go and see whether the consolidation you're
thinking of is (a) the right approach and (b) you're the one to carry
it out.
