Do you not like the name. Are you concerned with belittling RTEMS?

Any reason why or just a gut feeling?
I just wanted it to be small and simple. It seems like
a waste to do a whole new function that differs only in
the print and the args passed. Every other OS does a lot
more work.

Would you prefer something like this?
		if (iflag)

		/* load (and uncompress), but don't start if "autostart"
		 * is set to "no"
		if (((s = getenv("autostart")) != NULL) && (strcmp(s,"no") == 0)) {
			char buf[32];
			sprintf(buf, "%lX", len);
			setenv("filesize", buf);
			return 0;
		appl = (int (*)(int, char *[]))ntohl(hdr->ih_ep);
		(*appl)(argc-1, &argv[1]);
		return 0;
