Image to big error on brcm47xx (for 8 and 16MB devices)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: hauke
Priority: high Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Trunk


On actual Trunk most images are to big finaly.
When trying to pack the uncompressed image OR build an Image
bigger then 8 MB no image is generated.

I tryed to build an image for an E3200, which has 16 MB Flash,
but an image with just 10MB is not build.

Same Problems with an Image of 7.2MB in size for an E3000.
The usual .bin and .trx file was build, the last image, which contains the "uncompressed image" gives an "to big" error.

At the moment the maximum image size for brcm47xx is 7.2MB. No matter how big the flash in the router really is.

The Hardlimit of an 8MB Flash makes so no sence for router with bigger flashes!

Found a discussion here. I think adding an Option to menuconfig for chosing the maximum imagesize can make sense...
