While we are on the subject - Do either of you think support for the x86
zimage/bzImage format should end up here in common code? Not that the x86
(b)zImage header is unique (see arch/x86/include/asm/bootparam.h) and
decompressing vmlinux out of an x86 (b)zImage is non-trivial given the
header and decompression stub
