There's nothing to check... I've mounted this cpio.gz image and there's
only /init script which may fail at exec switch_root /newroot $init. So
the problem remains: it just don't work. Maybe there were some changes
in busybox since 1.00-4? I've just checked its commit log and: Sun Mar 23 21:10:19 2008 by adamg, auto-ac-busybox-1_00-4
- introduce switch_root (be comaptible with recent recent busybox versions)

it's first version having this, so it can be too old version (in R).

#  grep switch_root =initrd-busybox
Binary file /bin/initrd-busybox matches
