SubjectUgly error messages in 2.2.0 Release...
Hi, gentlemen!

I'd like to know why the ugly error messages about changing old root when
booting with initrd image have been left in released 2.2.0? I can understand
them being in developers' version, but we have a 2.2.0 Release.... Are they
forgotten about or left on a purpose (e.g. for frigtening unsuspecting
user :))?

The messages are:

=== Cut ===
Jan 26 21:05:15 nomad kernel: VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
Jan 26 21:05:15 nomad kernel: change_root: old root has d_count=5
Jan 26 21:05:15 nomad kernel: Trying to unmount old root ... <3>error -16
Jan 26 21:05:15 nomad kernel: Change root to /initrd: error -2
Jan 26 21:05:15 nomad kernel: Freeing unused kernel memory: 60k freed
=== Cut ===

I can (and I will definitely do) comment those error messages outta
distribution kernel, but I think they have to be removed outta production
