Sorry, I thought initramfs would be clear on its own that its not
initrd, but I guess some people do use it interchangeably. Anyway, I
have some experience in programming, so is there anything you could
suggest that I might tweak to test your theory on the decompressor? Or
would this be more of a kernel VM allocator issue? Also, would
ramdisk_size have any bearing on this?
