So I should get my "multiple loopback filesystem" support fixed, so
that when you have two CDroms (or copy some loopback file somewhere
else) you can use multiple loopback filesystems.

That way I could make a root.img, games.img, x.img, web.img and
whatever is found is mounted and they could be split on the two CDs.


PS: I hope nobody minds using vesa2 framebuffer (slow but compatible)
and devfs support.
