I've put this project on ice since I've got to get Linux running perfectly
_stable_ on some VME thing before I can work on something else again.  This
is now my ultimate hacking priority due to ``other opportunities''.

In any case, the code to read ext2 filesystems from ARC supported block
devices is mostly done; it'll need to be tested and debugged.  Wrapping
this code with something like an ELF load is going to be simple.
