Indeed!  This is on my list of stuff to do - straighten out once and
for all how BI_INITRD works and then rewrite the Gemini boot process
to use it.  It seemed like we had two interpretations:

1. The BI_INITRD boot record contains the start address and the size
   of the initrd.

2. The BI_INITRD boot record contains the entire initrd itself (as a
   really large boot record).

I have no preference either way, I just want someone to tell me which
way we're going to do it. :)
