create_sysfile - create a kernel system file
The create_sysfile command creates a kernel generation description

The system file is built according to the drivers required by the

CPU type of the machine, then it scans the system hardware and
includes all drivers it can identify to run the existing hardware. If
outfile is specified, the resulting system file is sent to outfile.
If outfile is not specified, the output is placed in the file
The create_sysfile command returns zero upon normal completion or 1 if
