Since Android 5 we use the fotakernel partition for recoverys
The fotakernel partion is only used in stock Roms for the updateing process in cm or in cm based Roms the fotakernel partion is not used
we think its very usefull to use it for recoverys

Thanks for the links! I think it's very smart and usefull way to use useless partition. Anyway it's very retard decision from Sony to intergrate boot and recovery to same partition. They should learn from nexus and keep those separate.
