Comment (by bonefish):

 Replying to [comment:10 meianoite]:
 > Here it is. One thing, however: writembr hasn't been ''written'' yet
 (see #5595). Moreover, I have no idea where the shared header should
 reside. I suppose the header would contain just the kBootCode array, so
 it's probably just a matter of excising it from PartitionMapWriter.cpp.

 If the assembly code can be munged by one of the assemblers the build
 system already uses (gcc/gas and, for x86, yasm), please do not add the
 compiled code in any form. There's the jam rule `DataFileToSourceFile` to
 create a source file defining an array from a binary file. It is already
 used in a similar case in `src/apps/bootmanager/Jamfile`.
