The final part doesn't need to be in kernel space at all.
(And from my reading of the spec, shouldn't be, as it signifies
the OS completed the final stages of booting successfully)

http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/sbf.c
is some quick code I hacked up when bootflag.c first appeared.
Its not perfect, and I have some outstanding patches that Randy Dunlap
sent to clean up some bits, but I've not got around to merging them.
