Any suggestions for reviving a hosed bash?

Is there a recommended way to recover?  I have been poking around on my
root filesystem by passing init=... args to the kernel  (ie init=/bin/ls
-F /bin /sbin) and have come the the conclusion that bash is the only
shell on the root fs.  (There is /bin/csh which is a symlink to a
symlink to /usr/bin/tcsh, but /usr is a seperate fs.)  I don't think
there is any way to recover without having a shell... because the root
fs is still mounted read-only, it would take at least two commands to
replace bash, but you only get one by using init=... .

I am running out of ideas to try... any suggestions?
