mkelfImage is a program that makes an ELF boot image for Linux kernel
images. The image should work with any i386 multiboot compliant boot
loader or an ELF boot loader that passes no options. It is compliant
with the LinuxBIOS ELF booting specification or with the Linux kexec
kernel patch. A key feature here is that nothing relies on BIOS calls,
but they are made when necessary. This is useful for systems running
