Except for /etc/platform, the contents of mfsroot.gz in wrap and
generic-pc images are identical. What's different is just the boot
loader and kernel. Even config.xml is the same for all platforms
(since both Soekris and WRAP boards conveniently use NS DP8381x NICs).
Therefore, all that was needed in the past was a shell script to
build the image that accepted paths to the boot loader and kernel
that were to be used, as well as the string to write to /etc/platform.
