[klibc] booting initramfs, again

Hi.  I am starting work on a Linux-based boot disk for my project
(http://unattended.sourceforge.net/).  I find initramfs elegant, so I
want to use it.

Luckily for me, I found this message in the archives relatively early:


Sure enough, I am not able to boot from an initramfs unless I patch my
kernel and pass "root=0:0" on the kernel command line (kernel 2.6.2).

Is this one-line patch still the recommended method for using
initramfs?  If so, is anybody trying to get it into the stock kernel?
