The following architectural tasks need to be accomplished and should be
fairly easy to complete:


- use dynamic allocations for working memory. Scan & fix code
for excessive stack allocations. take linux/scripts/checkpatch.pl and
see what the worst offenders are. Example, on amd64:

$ objdump -d | checkpatch.pl | head -10

0x00431301 image_open [openocd]: 13464

- clean-up code to match style guides
- factor code to eliminate duplicated functionality
- rewrite code that uses casts to access 16-bit and larger types
