Ouch.  A silly decision, but definitely an uphill fight to get it changed.

using a big(~370MB) initrd.cpio with not enough ram (1GB) in qemu i get this kernel message

"Initramfs unpacking failed: write error"

using a small(~14MB) initrd.cpio with just a staticaly linked c based
init for the kernel also with 1GB ram (more then enough) gives me this kernel message:

"Initramfs unpacking failed: junk in compressed archive"

and i currently can't say if only the first is evil or both

both cpios created with "find . | cpio -H newc -o initrd.cpio"
