One of these days I'll get around to adding the bits that let you say
"boot" on the PALcode console prompt.  But in the meantime, I find the
ability to boot the bios up to the "Hello" useful as a smoke-test for
TCG changes.

That said, I can see how it can be confusing for anyone else, it would
be more useful to have something integrated with the testsuite instead,
so I won't object if we want to print an error message for lack of
-kernel or (explicit) -bios command-line arguments.
