Hi, I've been reading "Operating System Source Code Secrets Volume."  The
authors imply (I can't remember the exact quote) that locore has a
history.  Does anyone know where this name came from, or where it first
appeared?  My intuition tells me "locore" means low memory (as in old
magnetic core memory)?  Just curious.
