We have initramfs working on IPCop (with cpio).
It basically just work and will need a bit of polishing to support various
corner cases, like nousb, acpi=off.
LVM or encrypted root are not supported.

The only trouble we have yet is on halt as unmounting /dev on tmpfs, it claim to
be busy. Not a big trouble for a FS in RAM when halting.

To boot from floppy, we have a separate mini-initramfs and 2 root floppies.
