I don't realy understand the problem nor why you are trying to directly
use a different bootloader w/o chain-loading the NetBSD one or using
MULTIBOOT. You need to understand the "protocol" between bootloader and
kernel in detail before you can try to replace parts of it. There is more
to it than loading and calling _start.

I assume the kernel will relocate it self (virtually) and the elf info
describes the final state after relocation.
