Excuse me, but playing around with three or four different source trees
simultaneously I somewhat lost track of what I have published so far. :-)
IIRC you don't need any patches or command line options if you are using the
latest snapshot from September 5th. The "hello world" program is /bin/sh on the
ramdisk image and will be executed automagically.
A simple test to check wether it is really executed is an additional printk in
sys_open(...) in fs/open.c.
Obviously you need working serial interrupts to see the hello message itself.
