Maybe, but note that it does introduce at least one new bugs where
FILO is unable to load more than one file. (Ie when using an initrd
it often fails.)

I thought this was because I broke the simple yet effective caching
system in FILO's block layer, but I looked it over and it did seem
OK. I have not had time to investigate further.

Furthermore I think the patch still hoses FILO in VMware.

6, but I don't want to sign it off until those two issues are fixed.
If anyone feels like helping out, please do.
