Boot speeds can be sped up by mirroring the payload into
main memory before doing the actual loading. Systems that
would benefit from this are typically Intel ones whose SPI
are memory mapped. Without the SPI being cached all accesses
to the payload in SPI while being loaded result in uncacheable
accesses. Instead take advantage of the on-board SPI controller
which has an internal cache and prefetcher by copying 64-byte
cachelines using 32-bit word copies.
