    I have basic vkernel functionality working for userland on leaf,
    for SOC and other developers.  

    However, to make it useful there needs to be user-accessible
    network support.  Otherwise the vkernel has no real way of
    copying files into and out of its running image.  I am writing
    a little network service to make this possible and reasonably
    secure and that is going to take another day or two.

    In the mean time, if you want to mess around with the vkernel
    support there are two scripts in /usr/local/bin on leaf that will
    get you started, called 'initvkernel' and 'runvkernel'.

    Once I get the network support working for userland I will put
    together some init scripts to set up a kernel build environment,
    for those people doing kernel projects.
