Only after someone spends the time to fix src/release/Makefile to produce
a boot image intended for CDROM booting.  There is no reason we cannot
have a 5 MB CD-ROM boot kernel image on the Alpha.  Thus we would not
need to cut anything out.  JKH signed up to do this (poke, poke :-)), but
that has yet to happen.  Do you know what the size limit is for the
CD-ROM boot image on Alpha(SRM)?
