: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.

    It has a big history, but I don't know the specifics.  I recommend
    asking Kirk McKusick.
