BTW, I suppose this may be a problem for the NSLU2 people (but not for
Debian) because they cannot afford to waste flash space.

I thought of putting both APEX and the Linux kernel in one partition
and have APEX read the offset of the Linux kernel from the end of the
partition but I fear that this won't work either because the partition
can probably not be *longer* than 8 blocks either (but I haven't tested
