we try to setup an initrd for diskless nodes, which allows us a
modular kernelconfiguration (especially the net-drivers). it work
quite well, but ...

the problem is that a "rpciod" kernel-thread references the initrd,
and so umounting and freeing it, isn't possible.

has anybody an idea how to fix this problem, cause it would be nice,
to free the initrd ram on a diskless node.

this is what comes after processing the initrd:

Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on
Looking up port of RPC 100005/1 on
VFS: Mounted root (NFS filesystem).
change_root: old root has d_count=3
Mounted devfs on /dev
Trying to unmount old root ... <3>error -16
Change root to /initrd: error -2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 56k
