The last rediff is patchwork id 12168-12181 posted Jul 11.  They get 
context rejects in the Makefile and ops.h, and I plan to change the 
property name from boot-file in patch 12.  Also, I need to make the 
search for rmo_end be based on device_type "memory", looking for the 
extent starting at 0.
