Some Xen developers have questioned why one would ever need to run a
Mini-OS application before thread scheduling is enabled.  I can see no
reason to do it.  If no one else can, I suggest each an application be
a thread function that is started in kernel.c.

I can, when writing a boot-loader there is no need for multiple
threads, so I would like the option of not having to start (and clean
up after) any.

Perhaps the last part of start_kernel() could be moved to a weak
function, that people like me can override?
