It doesn't sit around doing entirely nothing, it sits around
so that when the machine is reset it can do the copying again...
In any case, I'm going to drop patches 7 and 8 from target-arm.next
for the moment so we can come to a consensus about whether this
should be -device or -object (and possibly respin the patch to
use -object if we decide that; hopefully it should be simple...)
I'll keep patches 1..6 in.
