Re: Kernel ELF entry point

Unfortunately NetBSD kernel build infrastructure can't differentiate

Defining ENTRYPOINT seems perfectly reasonable to me.

I'm wondering that kernel should be always provided as a relocatable,
so that it can be linked against different load addresses.  I've
received only negative reactions, though.

You have had mostly questions about the value of using a relocatable stage to solve
the MI linker script as far as I can tell.

Are there any others? For example, how about generating a linker script from MI and MD parts
at for use at final link time?
