That looks better, although I'm not really happy about those
numbers either.

c/src/lib/libbsp/m68k/shared/start.S starts with a jump to an
entry point, immediately after that it reserves a lot of space
for interrupt stacks, exception vector tables, etc. I'm still
wondering what the real reason for that is. I don't think anyone
would do things this way without a very good reason.
