I've been working on this a few weeks ago, but got stuck with a segfault
in the initramfs, somewhere around the pivot_root() call IIRC. A regular
F14 install works fine on the same machine (and with the same KVM
parameters), so I have no idea what's going on.

If anyone is interested, I can clean up the patch series a bit more and
publish both the upstreamable parts (a few changes to sd_card_image) and
the WIP patch for booting a regular Fedora kernel using grub.
