 This mistake arose out of my attempt to clean up the namings of things
 in the original initram. It had names from two sources.

 This patch cleans up that error, and is my attempt at cleaning up the
 null pointer
 issue in device/device.c, which I actually don't understand.

 This patch allows me to almost boot a Plan 9 kernel from flash.
