Well, in the case of the APM/bios trampoline, I chose to do it as a
checked-in file since there's absolutely nothing about it which varies
from kernel to kernel (no options affect the contents), and it was far
easier for me to figure out how to build it and check it in than to wire
it into the kernel build Makefiles.
