Hi,

Everytime we add/remove a feature from kernel location of entry_point symbol changes. As a result we 've to recompile bootloader with new entry_point location. Adding a simply jump instruction to kernel_entry point in head.S can solve this problem. Why dont we make this change permanent in kernel.
