cool, thanks, good to know! :)
this is definitely an improvement - BUT forces me to rebuild (or at
least link) the kernel every time I change the cpio archive, right?
so, I'd still be interested in a possiblity to use an appended initrd
(which for me has the additional advantage of having the root filesystem
read only without the need to give extra parameters or change something
inside the kernel) .. plus, it would possibly work with stock
Thanks for the pointer and any other information! :)
