   I've been hacking on elilo, massaging Fred's patch into the CVS code
base and also adding support for compressed dom0 kernel images.  GRUB
uncompresses these images on x86 so it seemed a reasonable and
convenient feature for elilo to have.  I was able to consolidate a
couple files from the architecture specific directories into the main
elilo directory, good for the code, bad for the size of the diff (150k).
I've put the patch vs CVS and a prebuilt elilo/ia64 binary here:


Please test and let me know if you find any problems.  I'll refine the
patch a bit and work with Brett to get this committed to CVS and get a
new release out.  Thanks,
