This also means that if you have an SD card with *no* boot.scr
on it, you can boot any other u-boot.bin by pressing the AUX button.
And it will not flash.

So if you compile your own u-boot just take the u-boot.bin and
place it on a SD and boot with AUX pressed.

The special flashing code (rule 4) must be enabled explicitly
when compiling.
