[20060512] Adding bootable kernel-only ISOs in addition to *.fs floppy images
I've been working and musing on bootable ISOs that don't use floppy emulation for some time over the past few months, mostly due to my work on g4u, which uses the new CD bootbloc (bootxx_cd9660) and the in-tree mkisofs-replacement (makefs -t cd9660). I've found many things where NetBSD's release build infrastructure can be improved, and to make a start, I have collected the related bits to offer bootable kernel-only ISOs in addition to *.fs floppy images.

Those that didn't pay attention^W^Whaven't followed the discusion can read the full proposal. for all the details.

Now we'll see if someone finds this useful (or if I just go and commit this, or lose interest over yet another pointless bikeshed "discussion").
