I've been looking around for the code that unzips a kernel image into memory
before booting it, a la the i386 bootloader. However, I can't find it --
could someone send me a pointer? I've looked so far in sys/arch/i386/stand,
sys/stand, and sys/arch/i386/*, along with /usr/src/distrib/*, but I do not
see anything obvious yet.
I would think it would be in arch/i386/stand, as it seems that the i386
bootloader lives there, but I don't see any unzip code. Am I wrong in
thinking that there is unzip code there in the first place?
