"At most one bootloader" is wrong in many situations. On many ARM
platforms, you have two bootloaders. A small first stage bootloader,
and a full-featured second stage bootloader such as U-Boot or Barebox.
On AT91 platforms, you have AT91Bootstrap + U-Boot or Barebox.
On some i.MX platforms, you have mxs-bootlets + U-Boot or Barebox.
On some OMAP platforms, you have X-Loader + U-Boot.
So clearly, we should keep "Bootloaders" in the plural form.
