I can't boot oskit-mach yet because the oskit partition support is broken.
I got the libparted patches from Neal, they all work great except serverboot
doesn't make use of libstore, it still uses the partition code from mach.
I heard Marcus talking about getting rid of serverboot, so instead of fixing
serverboot I can better write the code to get rid of it. I have the following
things that needs to be done for it:

1) Write the support code for multiple modules in mach and let it use the
   multiboot cmd line.
2) A way of passing options to the modules which are loaded.
3) Making multiboot headers for ld.so and ext2fs.static.
4) Everything I forget and somebody points me at.

Grub already has support for multiple modules and cmd lines for the modules.
