Yep. This is how bayou always has worked, and it is also the reason
that I think CBFS can be ignored unless you really require it.

They are needed to allow a new use case for bayou where bayou itself
is stored in CBFS as normal/payload, bayou.xml is maybe also stored
in CBFS, and finally each payload file that bayou wants to start will
also be stored in CBFS, and all files will be stored separately.

But for the way things work now, where the bayou ELF file includes
all the secondary payloads all those changes are not needed at all.
