mkelfImage is a utility to create ELF boot images from Linux kernel images.

It might be possible to use a vmlinux file with an embedded initramfs image as a payload, without using mkelfImage. We haven't tested this yet and would appreciate your feedback if you decide to try this alternative approach.

Downloading and building mkelfImage

$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/util/mkelfImage
$ cd mkelfImage
$ ./configure
$ make
