mkelfImage has a number of additional components, actually a fair bit of 
code. So far, (2) is winning -- put the cmdline (linux params) in an elf 
segment @0x90000, vmlinux and initrd in other segments.

Actually, in V1, I had a gunzip step built into linuxbios. I still think 
that was not a bad deal.
