Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-12-27 23:57:33 EST
when I try to reproduce this now, I get different failures, that look to be
because we don't have /dev/initctl

It smells a bit odd to me, but I don't think it's a kernel bug. reassign to
mkinitrd ?

The kernel has probably long since been fixed. I'll just close it.
