Yes, only at init time.

Done (separately).

I need to back up a bit. Yesterday these BUGs happened consistenly,
so I wondered why. Then I recalled that for debugging another bug/problem,
I had changed the test system's normal boot kernel from 2.6.25 to
2.6.18-8. The test system is used to build and then boot the new kernel
*via kexec*, so it's quite possible (or certain) that something in the kexec
world has been fixed since 2.6.18. I don't recall seeing this problem
lately when using 2.6.25 to kexec/boot the new test kernel, so I'm quite
willing to drop the bug for now and then re-open it if I see the problem
again. OK??
