I upgraded from vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-mckinley to linux-image-3.2.0-2-itanium

Start-Date: 2012-05-03  10:43:33
Commandline: apt-get install linux-image-3.2.0-2-itanium
Install: firmware-linux-free:ia64 (3, automatic),
         linux-image-3.2.0-2-itanium:ia64 (3.2.15-1)
Upgrade: libklibc:ia64 (1.5.20-1+squeeze1, 2.0~rc3-1), klibc-utils:ia64
         (1.5.20-1+squeeze1, 2.0~rc3-1), linux-base:ia64
         (2.6.32-41squeeze2, 3.5), initramfs-tools:ia64 (0.98.8, 0.102)
End-Date: 2012-05-03  10:44:54

When I tried to boot the new kernel it freezed completely. I replaced
busybox with /bin/busybox in the initrd.img as suggested by Émeric and
it fixed this bug on my Powerdege 7250.

# uname -a
Linux debian 3.2.0-2-itanium #1 SMP Sun Apr 15 17:53:42 UTC 2012 ia64
