Ah.  I misread your desires.  So no I was incorrect.  Its not done.

Thats a interesting idea but I think its going to run into some
issues.  Many of the chipset registers can only be played with after

getting linuxbios build as an elf shouldn't be too hard but splitting
linuxbios up into core "only do once" and "repeatable" sections may be
more difficult.

I'm not guru enough with the ld magic to know so someone else will
have to comment.
