One step at a time.

A lot of the tiny kernel work has been merged into linus's tree
for 2.6.16.

I think the interesting linuxbios related kboot activities are.
1) Hook mkelfImage into the build so we will easily have an image
   that we can use with linuxbios.
2) Figure out how to use kboot on host nodes :)  Video now works on a good day.

And then there is my very evil plan spam the kboot list on topic discussion :)
