The `-H' option does not work anymore (please correct me if I am wrong).
This used to work with serverboot, I think there is something wrong with the
bootscript or how Mach or ext2fs.static passes the argument to init.

It is easy to change GNU Mach so it just stops (for (;;); or perhaps just
halting the system) instead of rebooting.  This might be useful when GNU Mach
crashes and you want to report it.

I already have the "for (;;);" hack in my tree.  Perhaps I can even change GNU
Mach so this becomes the default behaviour and you can use an argument to switch
to the old behavior.

Does someone think such patch would be useful?
