exit                                       #  Let the (re)boot begin.
VFS:  (it's an msdos filesystem.)
kernel panic:  Can't find init.

Well, of course it can't find init.  It called my root filesystem
msdos, rather than umsdos, and "promotion" didn't occur.
How can I make this thing boot a umsdos root filesystem?
