Re: ext2 for /boot ???

If you put all necessary drivers into the kernel rather than as
modules, and your system fits a particular set of criteria, you
can do without an initrd or initramfs entirely.

*IF* it fits a particular set of criteria, including but probably not limited to the following :

The root filesystem is NOT
- identified by UUID or LABEL in the root= parameter
- in an LVM logical volume
- in a software RAID array using modern 1.x superblocks
- in a dm-crypt or LUKS encrypted device

The mass storage or network adapter used to access the root filesystem does NOT require to load an external firmware.

/usr is NOT on a separate filesystem (it can boot but but expect trouble)

Hibernation does NOT use uswsusp (userspace suspend).

I'm afraid these criteria exclude a lot of systems.
