For me, both 2.6.20-rc6 and 2.6.20-rc7 fails while booting with initramfs
(initramfs that uses busybox) with "request_module: runaway loop modprobe
binfmt-0000" error.

So i modified kmod.c with [1] to get dump_stack, here is the picture taken
with [2] dump_stack enabled one with description below.

And here is the some observations that i made;

* Booting without an initramfs works,
* Booting with converted initrd from failed initramfs's content works,
* Booting with "Hello world" type initramfs described
in "Documentation/filesystems/ramfs-rootfs-initramfs.txt" works,

But what is not working is busybox binaries inside the _initramfs_, modifiying
our init shell script to use staticly linked bash with confirms that, bash
script interpretted without a problem by staticaly linked bash until
busybox's mount binary called inside the initramfs.

First i thought somehow busybox is broken but copying initramfs's content into
initrd works without a problem and also same binaries are working with 2.6.18
so i think its a regression in kernel but of course im not sure :), if you
need more information please ask.
