I haven't looked at gcc4 + ash _yet_, (looks simple enough to 
fix...should I put my foot in my mouth now?) but we should definitely 
put a big warning before the /bin/sh symlink (or just take it out all 
together).  Hotplug scripts are written incorrectly to call /bin/sh when 
they require features in bash or zsh, and the released 3.2.1 bootscripts 
are broken with ash.  The bootscripts in SVN are okay and should be 
tested ready soon, but the hotplug scripts are beyond practical repair. 
  It's too much work to bother fixing them seeing as they will probably 
be going bye bye in the near future anyway.
