    Subjectbootimg and LOBOS
    one other interesting difference: bootimg lets user mode read in the file,
    and pass a pointer to the kernel; LOBOS reads in the file in the kernel
    using read_exec(), after first doing a lookup on the name and getting a
    dentry.

    Why does LOBOS do it in the kernel? well, there are cases you want to let
    linux boot linux without even getting to running a user-mode process.
    Think of linuxbios ...

    Now that I've said this I'll see Werner's v3 tomorrow that does this too
