When I get home next week I'll work on a separate tool which can make a
zImage.ps3.rom given a kernel binary and an initrd -- much like the
existing 'mkzimage' script which does it for OF machines. Then we can
build the otheros.img without having to rebuild the kernel just to get a
zImage out of it.

Hopefully we'll have kexec working in 2.6.21 by then :)
