 {/bootpart}/boot/olpc.fth explicitly does a search for bootfw.zip to see
 if an XO not running in secure mode should update its firmware.

 However it does not look like it searches for a bootfw#.zip, where # is a
 number indicating the XO version (0=XO-1, 1=XO-1.5, 2=XO-1.75; see
 #10900).  This is an alternative allowed name for bootfw.zip to permit
 more than one XO version's install media to be on the same disk.

 XO-1.75 also introduces ecfw.zip {or ecfw#.zip (ecfw2.zip)} to just update
 the ec code, which needs to be searched for as well.

 Seen in 11.3.1 os29.
