ok. But we can still do this in a different way.

The reason is that I might want to use the unrv2b function even when I 
am not using compressed rom streams. The reason is that I will be nrv2b 
compressing the VSA object code on the OLPC. So that function can't be 
static. how do we handle this?

the problem is there is no ilen defined in the rom_stream.c code.

So you need to either create that variable or taek it out of the 
printk_debug (which I did).
