I don't understand.  Shadowing is chipset specific and would have to be 
done for all chipsets in v1 or v2.  Putting it in the chipsets 
northbridge.c is way better than having to modify and keep a special 
version of ADLO's loader.s thats only works for one specfic chipset.

But who said anything about doing it for all chipsets in v1?  Ther are 
only a few of us that are trying to use ADLO. Let those who desire this 
add the necessary code.

All this does is provide an nice easy method of getting the vbios into 
C000.  Rather than the multi-step method of boot card in machine with 
COTS bios, copy bios to file, add file to the ADLO build, rebuild 
linuxbios, boot card under linuxbios+adlo.
