Building VxWorks Kernels
There are many variants of the VxWorks kernel.
The ones used here are:
bootrom minimal kernel for booting a full kernel;
put into PROM/EPROM/flash in commercial VME boards
vxWorks full kernel; booted by above over the network
vxWorks.res_rom ROM-resident full kernel; used in the FRC due to
