I recent followed a recovery in a irc channel after installing a
wrong-architecture libc on a system. Only access was 2 existing root

Recovering involved
 - a base64 decoder written in shell
 - a statically linked busybox
 - overwriting /bin/ln
 - /bin/ln /bin/ln /bin/busybox
recovery would have been much faster if a rescue media was available,
but there was several thousands km between the sysadm and the box.
