    I'm using the 2.6.0-test9 kernel and initramfs to store video mode data
    that my kernel mods will read during boot. Using cpio is a lot easier
    than making a file system using the loopback device. I want to keep
    the rootfs around since I can modify it and then cpio it back up in a
    shutdown script for next boot.

    If I used initrd I'd also have to set up a usable filesystem. This way
    I can just have data in there.
