- because it's created during the compilation process. Therefore, you
- can't do everything on this target filesystem skeleton, but changes to
- it do remain even if you completely rebuild the cross-compilation
- toolchain and the tools. <br /> You can also customize the <code>
- target/generic/device_table.txt</code> file, which is used by the

- permissions and create device nodes.<br /> These customizations are
- deployed into <code>output/target/</code> just before the actual image

- any new changes to the image.</li>
