While trying to generate an image using the ci20_defconfig (on
git 84d471a0b1) with a few
extra libraries added I am getting the following error:

>>>   Executing post-image script support/scripts/genimage.sh

make[1]: *** [Makefile:808: target-post-image] Error 1

Does anybody understand what this part rootfs size refers to? The
rootfs.ext4 size if the 128M I set as BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_EXT2_SIZE but
unsure what the other number is, or what it means.

Kind regards,

Paulo Matos
