Ah, that's end of August already, gmrbl. No news from upstream still.
I have progressed on the coding side of yasm. The parser now being in C
my patch will be probably quite easy to get accepted as it won't modify
the existing behavior at all, only for the new tasm frontend. The last
bit I have to fix is the adress parsing which is a bit different between
nasm and tasm (the parser being in C will actually make things a bit
easier). loadlin is top on my TODO list now anyway.
