Yes. In our case we can only provision the NOR flash in the factory (which
is too small for the real file system), so I have the swupd-client inside a
small initramfs in NOR flash, and from there I can provision NAND flash
using swupd verify -i
All yocto based, but in its current state not in a generally useful shape
for a wider audience.
