All my kernels boot using a "preinit" that is built with nolibc and
integrated into the initramfs. Historically it used to just create /dev
entries and mount the rootfs, nowadays it's used to untar modules and
finish the boot so that I can have a clean separation between a kernel
image and a rootfs. It even allows to perform some minimal debugging as
it includes a minimalistic shell. Do you think something like this could
be of any use in your development sessions ? If so I can discuss this
with you in a separate thread so as not to annoy everyone. Just let me
know :-)
