I'll see what I can do to make this happen.  Since we're going this
route, we can drop the sercomm header on the ramdisk and put two skip
headers into the kernel partition.  That would mean that we'd be
copying kernel and ramdisk in the simplest fashion.

It doesn't matter to me, since the headers are easy to skip.  It would
be pretty, tho.
