Bug in binary /init

Hello,

the /init in initramfs compiled from init.c doesn't pass environment 
variables from the kernel command line to the real /sbin/init. This 
breaks the bootprompt-based language configurator. Please fix as soon as 
possible.

Testcase:

linux LANG=ru_RU.KOI8-R KEYMAP=ru-ms TZ=Asia/Yekaterinburg UTC=1

Actual result: questions about timezone and locale are asked during boot

Expected result: no questions asked
