The file loader.s copies the BIOS into RAM and sets up the CMOS values.  If
you use the 32-bit BIOS, you need to make sure all of it gets copied.  I was
also messing around with this because the loader needs to be 4k-aligned to
work with kexec, and that's the pathway I want to use.

These emails are from my latest progress.  I hope to get back to it soon,
but I'd love it if you beat me to it.


Feel free to ask specific questions once you're digging.
