turning off nfsroot fixes the err.

Could you throw me your configs, so I can try to reproduce it here?

The problem is:


A (compile-only) .config exhibiting this error is attached.

Yeah, OK, problem recovered; total thinko on my part -- I forgot to remove the in-kernel nfsroot code. Just setting CONFIG_ROOT_NFS=n will work just fine; right now kinit doesn't depend on the configuration (another buglet for my list), so if you set CONFIG_ROOT_NFS=n the kernel will compile *and* nfsroot should still work.
