It works. Most of the early testing and development was done on it. It
wouldn't give you dynamic sizing like ramfs though.

It would be nice to have a version of ramfs which compresses pages into a
separate backing store when they're unused. Shame somebody nicked the name
'cramfs' for something else, really :)

But I'm confused. Padraig, if you have no backing store, where do the
initial contents of your root filesystem come from?
