It really did reflash the kernel and ramdisk.  

  # /etc/mkinitramfs/nslu2.conf

But it seems like it shouldn't have.

It was clear in it's diagnostic messages that the mkinitramfs failed.
It couldn't find the ixp400 drivers, as expected.  Perhaps there is
something else in the script that is broken.
