The problem with the freeze is more strange that I thought. It seems
that busybox init on sparc drops out of pid 1, to pid 6. In it's place
is the swapper thread. When things send a signal to pid 1 (assuming that
pid 1 == init), things go wrong.

Still need to investigate. Until I resolve that problem, there's no
point in making new disks yet.
