Just wondering because I've never seen this before - Has anyone noticed what appears to be a secondary recovery menu in the kindle?

On the serial output, it says this:
Quote:
Press [ENTER] for recovery menu... 0 /
INFO:!!! Checking MBR /dev/mmcblk0 !!!!
INFOartition 2, start sector is 782336
INFOartition 3, start sector is 913408
INFOartition 4, start sector is 1044480
INFO:maximizing partition 2863104 sectors
INFO:*** Partition table verified for /dev/mmcblk0 ***
INFO:Loaded module /lib/modules/arcotg_udc_yoshime.ko (22912 bytes)
INFO:Loaded module /lib/modules/g_file_storage.ko recovery_mode=1 (36308 bytes)
Charge: 10% [######:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::]


Menu
====
3. Load MMC0 over USB storage
4. Erase MMC0
I. Initialize Partition Table (fdisk) and format FAT
O. Format and overwrite FAT partition
E. Export FAT partition
U. Update using update*.bin file on FAT partition
M. Update using update*.bin file on FAT partition of second MMC port
D. dmesg / kernel printk ring buffer.
Q. quit
And on the kindle, it simply says "RECOVERY MODE" in nice smooth text and shows a line drawing of a kindle. This is probably very old news, but I've never seen it mentioned.
