On second look, it's just /dev and /run_init, but those things *are* left.

I did notice your code uses MS_MOVE instead of MS_BIND, though, which 
seems to be the right thing.

Anyway, I think packaging things up a little nicer is not a bad thing. 
My run-init program pretty much takes care of everything past line 320 
in your shell script.  (By the way, why not include the mem devices in 
the initramfs cpio ball?)
