Close, but not quite. Linux requires a table with some runtime values
around. So at least a small wrapper that fills this table will be
necessary, I think.

But it should be possible to be more efficient than mkelfimage, by
amending the vmlinux image with another code fragment that fills the
table and jumps to the real entry point, and retargeting the entry
point. At least, it will spare you a copy operation or two.
