Comment (by justin at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I re-burned the 6.1.1-3 LiveCD after applying the patch to init.c.  The
 same happens as before, Starting Init... and it stops.  Nothing printed
 after it.

 While at work this morning, I had my server build completely from scratch
 a 6.1.1-3 with the patch applied, same result.

 To be 100% sure I didn't fsck it up, I used both CD's in a i686 system
 (where this problem never happens), the CD's booted, went past Starting
 init..., had a ton of can't write to...read-only file system....and
 finally can't open /dev/tty1: no such file or directory, for all tty's,
 and init respawning too fast.
