ARM has the option to disable the MMU like x86 and the
kernel starts in that mode by default which makes things straight
forward.

The biggest part is to figure out the format that the ARM kernel
accepts arguments in and generate those arguments when you load
an ARM kernel. Basically that the kexec code really does collect
up the information a boot loader would pass and it passes it to the
kernel.
Okay. I get that.

Perhaps a quicker path is to learn how to use the "Network boot" feature already in the Kindle's u-boot build.
Then the machine would be running (in RAM) a kernel and system image of our choice.
Ah. sounds like a plan yes. good thinking
