    BAD thing. Breaks IDE as modules (ide-mod and ide-disk used to
    be autoloaded here during boot-time fsck). Also loadkeys
    seems to segfault. Pre8 is OK. Setup:

    Linux melchior 2.2.0-pre8 #5 SMP mar jan 19 21:39:58 MET 1999 i586 unknown
    Kernel modules 2.1.85
    Gnu C egcs-2.91.60
    Binutils 980114
    Linux C Library 2.0.110
    Dynamic linker ldd (GNU libc) 2.0.110
    Linux C++ Library 2.8.0
    Linux C++ Library 2.8.0
    Procps 1.2.4
    Mount 2.7e
    Net-tools (1998-12-05)
    Kbd 0.94
    Sh-utils 1.16

    Compared ltrace & strace of loadkeys for pre8 and pre9, and full .config
    are available on request.

    Well, does "-final fails to boot" qualify?

    I do care for my IDE drive. And my keyboard layout. :)
