$ ninja -C build/ -t clean

and the bootloader does not finish updating, the file might be too large.
~700kB is the normal size, but problems were reported where the file size
was >1MB. This was caused by the ``tr`` tool in the build process
(it's supposed to create a large file with 0xff in it) - this requires the
LC_ALL environment variable to be not set, or set to "C"
(but not UTF8 or similar).
