That's the MSFC bootstrap. What you want to upgrade is the SP
rommon, as that's what'll load the image and transfer control
to the MSFC.

I believe that's not a problem, as the supervisor should still
be able to boot from the 'gold' region, which AFAIK can't be
over-written. (That'll likely be quite old, however).

You should be able to run 'upgrade rom <something forgotten>'
and then reload the switch.
