From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.6 i86pc)

Description of problem:
When mkinitrd builds a ram-disk, the linuxrc script that is written has the
echo and mount commands for /proc backwards.  The mount command preceeds
the echo.  All other commands have the echo preceeding the actual command.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkinitrd --nocompress /tmp/foo.img 2.4.7---
2. mount -o loop /tmp/foo.img /mnt/floppy
3. cat /mnt/floppy/linuxrc

Actual Results:  mount /proc
echo Mounting /proc filesystem

Expected Results:  echo Mounting /proc filesystem
mount /proc

Fixed in CVS (mkinitrd 3.3 should show up in rawhide shortly).
