This inspired me to touch up the general description of LinuxBIOS in
the FAQ, to include mention of OpenBIOS and freebios. I realized that
there's some disparity in the term LinuxBIOS, in what it covers.

It's good to use LinuxBIOS for the completed product, including
payload and all. It looks good, feels good and is practical.

I would like to have a name for the part that isn't the payload.
Suggestions? I've called it "the initialization part|code" but I
don't like that too much.
