    If things would be that easy...

    Snippets from a slight modification to mount_root() in fs/super.c

    for (fs_type = file_systems ; fs_type ; fs_type = fs_type->next) {
    printk("VFS: Processing %s\n",fs_type->name);
    if (!(fs_type->fs_flags & FS_REQUIRES_DEV))
    if (!try_inc_mod_count(fs_type->owner))
    printk("VFS: Trying %s\n",fs_type->name);

    And now the results during boot (snippets again):

    VFS: Processing bdev
    VFS: Processing proc
    VFS: Processing sockfs
    VFS: Processing tmpfs
    VFS: Processing pipefs
    VFS: Processing ext2
    VFS: Trying ext2
    VFS: Processing msdos
    VFS: Trying msdos
    VFS: Processing vfat
    VFS: Trying vfat
    VFS: Processing iso9660
    VFS: Trying iso9660
    VFS: Processing nfs
    VFS: Processing reiserfs
    VFS: Trying reiserfs
    Kernel Panic: ...

    This clearly shows that there's definitely something going _very_ wrong.
    Best bet is loading/decompression of initrd. As far as I'm following the list
    there were initrd modifications discussed/done by Alexander Viro/Andrea
