contribute one ;)) - Figure out the procedure that is called the MOST during
bootup and add a little function to it, like
cycle_bootup_line_at_bottom_of_screen(), then, when the kernel is done
booting, nullify this procedure call in that function :)

>. Then after its done booting, say the address of the JMP instruction is
0xC0000002:

mov cs:0xC0000002, <OPCODE FOR "JMP $1">

Yea I know this looks dumb and blah blah but hey :)
