	Why not have the kernel define, or at least reserve space for, the
interrupt vectors?  If one specifies the correct padding and/or alignment,
the interrupt vector code will appear at the correct offsets when the
kernel is loaded at 0.  The kernel can start at 0, not its entry point or
normal code.
