[uClinux-dev] Exception vectors on ARM?

Can someone tell me where the exception vector table is located in uClinux?
 from what I can tell looking through the code, it appears the entry location
in the kernel is at "stext" in kernel/head-armv.S.  However, the code at stext
isn't in the form of an ARM exception table.  How and where do the vectors at
address 0 get filled in?  I'd like to link uClinux to address 0 and boot
directly from it w/o using a bootloader (RAM is at address 0 and is already
setup before the ARM boots).  Is this currently possible with uClinux?

Thanks in advance,
Lance
