Summary:                    Make cramfs bootable at least sometimes
Description: 
This configure option includes the linux kernel in the cramfs image, at a
set spot (sector 2), so that normal bootloaders can use it.  Otherwise
grub and lilo don't work with cramfs because of it's readonly nature.

This adds an assembly bootloader to cramfs which doesn't work all that
well.  But I think it's worth including since somebody may have time to
fix it.  And it's a better longterm solution since it's akward to require
people to force their normal bootloader to boot from sector 2.  This comes
from the midori project.

This updated patch does a few things:
(1) stripping is now down on temporary copies so it doesn't effect the
TARGET_DIR
(2) included a standard workaround for vim syntax highlighting bug

Are these patches still required with current trunk?
If so, please rediff against current trunk.
