Subject[PATCH 7/9] i386: paravirt boot sequence
This patch uses the updated boot protocol to do paravirtualized boot.
If the boot version is >= 2.07, then it will do two things:

1. Check the bootparams loadflags to see if we should reload the
segment registers and clear interrupts. This is appropriate
for normal native boot and some paravirtualized environments, but
inapproprate for others.

2. Check the hardware architecture, and dispatch to the appropriate
kernel entrypoint. If the bootloader doesn't set this, then we
simply do the normal boot sequence.
