Maybe naive, but it should work: When I did the binutils port I had to
think of a solution how to support the -e (--entry-point) option to ld. 
I ended up with hardcoding two assembler lines into the executable which
jumped to the entry point supplied on the command line. 

So what about putting 8k of garbage in front of the kernel's text segment?
