It is not fixed :-(((
hpa notified me in private mail that doing:
touch usr/kinit/kint.c

would only rebuild initramfs.cpio.gz half of the time.
This is due to the fact that make caches file timestamps, and is does
not reread timestamp of usr/kinit/kinit after we rebuild it.
make is correct here - somehow I have to tell make that we may rebuild
usr/kinit/kinit so it rereads timestamps.

That will be for tomorrow then - but if anyone beats me ;-)
