I need to make a FAQ page, and I want to add entries on:

1) How to make a bare metal vmlinux that the ELF loader can run, printing to the
turtle or numato serial console.

2) How to replace the bootloader with your own ROM code. (We even have a patch
that increases the amount of memory the simulator thinks the board has so you
can run arbitrarily _large_ test ROMs. They don't work on real hardware, but
it's still useful.)
