Huh? It's possible on _every_ port -- just pass it in to the booted
Yes, it's possible to get the name of the booted kernel at any time
from alpha firmware, but last i saw i didn't do that, ever. Also, as
previously noted, there are problems with this:
(1) what if your kernel isn't in your root partition (e.g.
nfs boot), and
(2) what do you do when/if it's renamed.
