Crunching the image filesystem to 7MB ;)

There's a difference between the image filesystem and the memory
filesystem (which can be larger then the image filesystem) In my current
images the image filesystem is 7MB and the memory filesystem 16MB. But
the physical image filesystem is written to the flash so it will fit
perfectly, even the memory fs is bigger... (the MFS is uncompressed
during boot)

Don't know anything about these tools, just wrote my own ones :)

Only when your mfs size is smaller then the actual needs for it

Maybe, can't answer that question.

Always read the manual for the correct way to do things because the
number of incorrect ways to do things is almost infinite
