I've encountered this in qemu where it tells you you are executing code
outside ram/rom at the kernel virtual entry address of 0xc0100000. The
NetBSD/i386 kernel needs to be loaded/entered at physical address
0x00100000, it's, however, linked to run at 0xc0100000.

This is trivial to fix, but the trivial fix may not be the right fix.

Now if only I was having more luck when grub2 was loaded from coreboot.
But that's another thread maybe.
