CHRP LongTrail: arch/ppc/chrpboot/zImage loaded via OF (floppy, hard disk, CD,

I _think_ this is arch/ppc/boot/images/zImage.chrp these days, but I really
have to verify (Tom? What about your LongTrail?).

Yesterday evening I just powered on my LongTrail again, after 43 days of

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
