Interesting. In my approach, I chose not to link them directly into
the kernel .. they will have to reference a couple of external routines
(mbuf accessors), but those can be resolved directly by the synthesizer.
...i.e. in mine, there will simply be a string of instructions that gets
jumped to -- there's nothing but in text in them, so this approach works
