| Well, this is a change proposal of some directory structure. Currently
| we have a /boot file, which is the system loader and a /netbsd which
| is the kernel.
| What I propose is the following:
| * Create a /boot directory to hold all booting related files.
| * Move /boot loader to /boot/loader.
| * Move /netbsd to /boot/kernel/GENERIC (or something else)
| * Other kernels will go also to /boot/kernel.
| Doing this we can have all these related files togheter in the same
| place. If you like to have several kernels, all can go to the same
| directory, whitout beeing in /.
Are you sure all architectures support second stage bootloaders
in subdirectories? And if not, do you plan to enhance the first
level bootloaders to support that?
