A static ELF loader would be easy to add, but I don't know what is the standard way to pass command line parameters to an OS. I agree that it is an important feature. Do you have images of a complete netbsd system (kernel with serial console + small disk image) ?

I just tried qemu and I am really impressed by its speed!

By reading vl.c, more precisely the part that loads the bzImage, I
realized how messy the linux boot process is (please don't flame :-)).

Would it be possible to have a program in the spirit of vl which will
just run a standard static ELF binary, passing the command line parameters
to it. This would allow booting some other OS's kernel with more direct
boot process, like for example NetBSD.

A sample (gzipped) ELF kernel is available at the URL
