Hello, all. When I was looking at the ambiguous strings and mistranslations I came accross "payload" ia64 command in Linux loader. Its description was so vague that it could do anything and still match the description. So I've decided to investigate to find out what it's about. But boot parameter structure in Linux files stops at initrd fields. Moreover the only reference on Google to ia64_boot_payload is our code. Could someone supply more details? If not I'll assume that it was just some debug feature during developpement and isn't used by anyone and remove it.
