>From the traffic on the mailing list it looks like a few folks might have copied the BeagleBoard .FDF files for their project. I'd though I let folks know that I've updated that FDF file to have a block size of 1, vs the 0x40 that was their before. Given on the BeagleBoard that the FV is loaded from FLASH to RAM by the hardware (mask ROM) and that it starts at 0x208 to make room for the mask ROM header file a one byte block size makes much more sense. 

The 0x40 value was done a long time ago to work around a bug in the DXE core that assumed the FV Header would fit in a single block. This bug was fixed a long time ago, but I never got around to fixing the BeagleBoard .FDF file. Since the current file got broken with a recent tools checkin (I fixed this yesterday), it reminded me I should move over to a single byte block size(checked in today).
