Magma is not depending upon these classes at all. It simply provides
some methods for serializing these classes.
If you have not got those classes in the image then you dont need the
methods for serializing them. If those classes are not present, simply
load magma anyway, ignoring the warnings. It is rather silly for the
Kernel Image Compatability Layer to provide these classes as dummies,
but I seem to remember that the KernelImage doesnt have any facilities
for handling exceptions gracefully
