I also agree that it is non-intitive. But I wonder if a cleaner
fix would be to remove CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START all together. Isn't
it just a work around for the kernel not being relocatable, or
are there uses for it that relocation can't replace?
Yes, booting with the 2^n existing bootloaders.
Relocation, as far as I've understood this patch, refers to loaded
address, not runtime address.
