I suggest you test if GRUB Legacy's Multiboot loader supports this
properly, as the code I used derives from that.

(be careful though, GRUB Legacy has a unified "kernel" command so when
given a kernel of NetBSD it might not use Multiboot automatically)

I believe NetBSD kernel developers (that'd be jmmv) implemented Multiboot
support in order to avoid duplication of efforts.  I think it's appropiate
to consider knetbsd loader as "legacy" and resolve this problem in our
multiboot loader.

(but I'm not against improving knetbsd loader of course)
