Right. In vice-setup-rvm there is the following code:

    case `uname -sr` in
	    "NetBSD 1.2" )
		    rvmstart=0x20000000 ;;
	    NetBSD\ 1.3* )
		    rvmstart=0x50000000 ;;
	    NetBSD\ 1.4* )
		    rvmstart=0x50000000 ;;
	    FreeBSD\ 2.2* )
		    rvmstart=0x50000000 ;;
	    FreeBSD\ 3* )
		    rvmstart=0x50000000 ;;
		    rvmstart=0x20000000 ;;

Hopefully `uname -sr` gives something unique (like Linux 2.2.10-VA), so
we can add a special case. Otherwise just change the default entry to
0x50000000. It looks like this might be safe on normal linux kernels as
