woo hoo! Thanks much. I was sorta hoping you would step in and help
out with the kbuild issues ;-)

FWIW, this should be ok for testing, but not a merge... we need to have
a single "do_mounts" code flow, not two code paths that are selected
with a switch.

That's why I see a lot of little klibc binaries, especially initially.
Moving piece-by-piece from do_mounts.c (and other places) to userspace
takes longer, but really maximizes both stability and testing of new code.
