Re: Bug#660446: linux-image-3.2.0-1-4kc-malta: Should include built-in support for ext4

Uhm, I politely disagree. Why? Why add ext4fs but not, say,
reiserfs? (I recently found myself in the situation of having
created an unbootable system, but that was easy to fix.)

On the other hand, klibc in testing has m68k support and
looks working; busybox is built. What more is needed for
this initrd stuff? This could also help systems with low
ST-RAM boot.

@porters: are there subarchitectures that cannot deal with
loading an initrd as part of the normal bootstrap?

//mirabilos (yes, mksh built against klibc on m68k even works)
FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
