    That wouldn't make init pid 1, though.

    I do agree that the right thing to do is to have initrd mount the new
    root filesystem, and communicate it to the kernel somehow (for example
    via /proc/sys), but the kernel needs to be aware of the transition
    event so it can make init pid 1.
