It's already an ext2fs filesystem (compressed, but libdiskfs has
something for that).

Or maybe just introduce a "rd0" device?

grub.cfg could look like

module /hurd/ext2fs.static ext2fs --multibootblabla
module /lib/ld.so.1 exec /hurd/exec etc.
module /boot/initrd rd0

Here gnumach notices rd0 and instead of starting a task, creates an rd0
device.  Then we can just pass root=device:rd0 to the kernel.
