[Xen-devel] [PATCH] Allow loading of bimodal 32 bit kernel

This patch does two things:
It allows for the loading of a x86 32 bit ELF kernel which handles
both PAE (extended cr3) and non-PAE operating modes. A bimodal
kernel detects the current operating mode and adjusts its usage of the
page tables accordingly.
The second thing the patch does is to change the elf loader to not look
for a strings section unless it is needed.

I've just changes the NetWare Xen loader (kernel) to no longer use the bin
loader, opting for the elf loader instead, as it is much better maintained,
and allows for better flexibility.
