And for those of us that would like to use it to store a 5mb file for
download testing when at a clients premesis, or to test speed across a
daisy chain of m0n0wall hostap's?

As the net45xx that you have is going to be used for a dedicated
firewall, and as that dedicated firewall only uses the CF to load the
image into RAM and then effectively unmounts the CF so that it is not
used except for saving changes to configuration information, there is no
need to use the remaining 128MB of this Flash card for anything at all. 
Not only is there no need, there is also little practical,
security-conscious reason that  you would even want to use this 123MB
for anything.
