Any file.  I created this patch in an attempt to use a dead task
(i.e. a task w/o a thread) as a ramdisk.  Now I'm (ab)using this patch
to load the script that my interpreter runs:

multiboot /boot/gnumach.gz
module /boot/bootshell bootshell \
'${host-port}' \
'${device-port}' \
'${bootscript-task}' \
'${hello-task}' \
'${rootfs-task}' \
'$(task-create)' \

module /boot/runsystem.scm runsystem.scm \
