delo 0.2 is up and running

I booted Debian GNU/Linux/Mips/Decstation multiple times on
my 5000/260 - delo is now able to read an ELF kernel from
the first partition on the disk, copy the sections to the
right locations and run it at e_entry.

The TODO list is getting shorter - Biggest problem i right now
see is crashes of the resulting kernel - But only when disabling
DEBUG output - I think there are some alignment issues.
