The memory location of the second LOAD entry (the .data section) is wrong.
It should be at 0x1c00000, but in fact its content starts at 0x1c0002c.
I looked at the x86 boot code, the vmlinux is gzipped and placed as
binary blob, which is then extracted by decompress().

I will cleanup my debug changes and post the output.
