I see, one or two modules are copied on the root disk, namely unix.o and
af_paket.o. Are there any special reasons having them as modules? IMHO
they are small and can be included in the kernel. The next time when I
edit rootdis.sh, I will look which root disks have identical content
(without modules) and can definitely be replaced by links.

Es kann aeusserst gefaehrlich sein, etwas ohne ausreichende
Vorbereitung aus der Sicht eines anderen Menschen zu betrachten.
