with the block device of the target hard disk as a parameter.

It's a bit hacky and it took me some trial and error to get it working,
but I was eventually able to boot a self-compiled kernel on one of
my USL-5Ps. Only issue I initially had was that the bus clock(?) was
set to an incorrect value in the kernel config. With the bus clock
set incorrectly, the kernel would just freeze up.

Oh, and I never managed to get the kernel detect the pseudo-IDE
