I'd be quite happy to see the bootloader code kept separate from the
kernel in future.

Fedora's ppc64-utils package currently has a 'mkzimage' script and a
bootloader stub based on what's in arch/ppc64/kernel, but modified to be
capable of loading 32-bit kernels too. We can quite happily put together
the stub, the vmlinux and the initrd after the fact.

I don't really see why any of the other stubs necessarily need to live
with the kernel either.
