__Everyone__ is already using an initramfs, therefore there are no
initramfs-less systems anymore (it may just be empty). Every single
person reading this thread that has not already done so needs to
immediately go read the relevant documentation located in
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ramfs-rootfs-initramfs.txt,
then and only then can a real discourse be had.

Why is an in-kernel initramfs so bad anyway? I am baffled. Its quite
nice to have a minimal recovery env in case mounting fails, etc, etc,
etc.
