I have put a "sleep 5" in the /init, to give SCSI controllers some time to 
settle. If you have waited more than 5 seconds and don't see kernel panic due 
to killing init, that's really something strange.

Does this problem persist when you don't apply reiser4 patches (the only thing 
that is different between our kernels) and/or with the pre-built "magic 
binary blob" initramfs? If it does, it may be a good idea to mail me your 
bzImage and initramfs_data.cpio.gz  privately.
