However, I'm wondering what to do about logging. Kernel log messages
get stored away until klogd gets started, but early userspace may need
some way to log messages -- and syslog is obviously not running. The
easiest way to do this would probably be to be able to write to
/proc/kmsg (which probably really should be /dev/kmsg) and push messages
onto the kernel's message queue; but we could also have a dedicated
location in the initramfs for writing logs, and do it all in userspace.
In the latter case there needs to be a convention to make sure this
file is actually present in the namespace at the time syslog starts, and
of course syslog needs to know about it...
