6.1.1 Debugging - shell based init

Attached is a replacement shell-based initramfs. If this boots on 
computers where 6.1.1-3 fails to boot, this confirms that the bug (most 
probably buffer overflow) is in the binary init.

mv initramfs initramfs.old
tar zxf initramfs.tar.gz

then rebuild the init.

If this hangs, please post the last 20 printed lines. Shell tracing is 
turned on by intention.
