Note that this kernel is gzipped, but not tarred. The Installer can't
install it the same way it installs the sets, but you can boot from it
directly, without unzipping, either by setting the Booter to boot from
a MacOS file, or by using "cpin" in the Installer's minishell to copy
it into the NetBSD filesystem.
