Since you went to all the effort anyway, would you please document how you
created the initramfs for your payload, and how you integrated it with
buildrom?  Eventually, I intend for buildroot to take over building LAB
payloads, since it is clear that the inmates have taken over the asylum
over at uclibc and are intent on making it unusable for regular users.
