Hi Luke,

This is a really cool idea, too.

Have you experimented with, or thought about, enabling the serial
gadget as well?  That would take away the routing config hassles,
although I guess you then need wifi or a usb/ethernet adapter for the
netinst download parts.

Unfortunately USB OTG in the GK802 is a bit flaky (the USB A & B ports
are wired together, and there are currently kernel bugs with
plug/unplug while OTG is enabled), but it should work great on A10. :)
