This is very cool! How does this show up on the main screen? Does it
still have the other options, like vesa / acpi and such, and then a
"change kernel" option?
With this in place I do think it makes sense to add a generic kernel
option as well. I'll add some glue to the build server to do that, so we
have a /boot/kernel.generic on the system as well.
Let me know when you have it finished enough for testing :)
