Also fixed an off-by-one argv bug in starting /sbin/init, but that is 
also fixed in klibc-0.130.

You are right. run-init from klibc-0.130 does not work with klibc-0.130 
(even without register parameters), but works when I recompile it 
against uclibc. It also works when compiled against klibc-0.116 without 
register parameters. In uclibc and klibc-0.116 cases, I had to add 
TMPFS_MAGIC and RAMFS_MAGIC definitions to the run-init.c file.

Hope this helps.
