[klibc] [PATCH] gen_init_cpio processes file from a file list

The patch makes gen_init_cpio generate the initramfs_data.cpio from a
file which contains a list of entries: file, dir, nod.  I swapped the
order of filename/location for the file arguments so that it would be
more uniform with the dir and nod tyes.

[thayne at torch linux-2.6.8]$ usr/gen_init_cpio --help
ERROR: unable to open '--help': No such file or directory

        usr/gen_init_cpio <cpio_list>

<cpio_list> is a file containing newline separated entries that
describe the files to be included in the initramfs archive:

file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid>
dir <name> <mode> <uid> <gid>
nod <name> <mode> <uid> <gid> <dev_type> <maj> <min>

<name>      name of the file/dir/nod in the archive
<location>  location of the file in the current filesystem
<mode>      mode/permissions of the file
<uid>       user id (0=root)
<gid>       group id (0=root)
<dev_type>  device type (b=block, c=character)
<maj>       major number of nod
<min>       minor number of nod

dir /dev 0755 0 0
nod /dev/console 0600 0 0 c 5 1
dir /root 0700 0 0
dir /sbin 0755 0 0
file /sbin/kinit /usr/src/klibc/kinit/kinit 0755 0 0
