I'm working on it. It pretty much works, but serial console (which is
crucial to VME, as it has nothing else) and userdevfs don't like
eachother quite yet. Trying to fix that; with a bit of luck, I'll be
able to do a tested commit to rootskel and userdevfs tonight which will
make it work. Next, vmelilo-installer is clearly written by someone who
didn't have the hardware -- it doesn't even remotely work. That needs
some massaging, too; this'll be my next target.
