Transfer control to OS kernel in RAM

After all images are loaded into RAM, we can start the OS itself. Starting the OS usually means copying it to a certain location in RAM, filling a memory structure and then transfer control to the OS code. In this stage the bootloader role is done and thus the OS can use the RAM area where the bootloader is.
