[klibc] Query regarding initramfs

Hi Rachita,

known issue: 
if you do pivot_root on an initramfs, and you try to unmount
the /initrd (original initramfs), the linux kernel will crash.
I think that is a bug, and should be fixed, but as far as I know
there is no progress.

But you shoudln't do that anyway. Replace pivot_root with
run-init from klibc distribution, and you don't have that

try to put back the mount calls from the original run-init.c 
instead of the pivot_root and you should be fine.

Good luck!

Regards, Andreas
