Thanks Myles!

Porting the loader from as86 style assembler to gas should be pretty
simple.  (In fact, I wonder if just telling gas to use intel syntax
would make it work.)

However, ultimately I think the logic should just be ported to C code.

I think we're going to need to teach legacybios about coreboot (and
maybe add some new things to coreboot).  I'd prefer not require a
special shim between the code just to pass the handful of parameters

Thanks again,
