Sorry I missed this earlier, there's been some other reports of boot 
failures on rc1 showing up but those were all a lot more vague.  Just 
setting CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y doesn't manifest a boot failure on QEMU on 
my end and I don't have an UNmatched floating around.

Alex says he's going to look into it (and IIRC he has my Unmatched...).
