Same kernel on both the kmin and the MAXine.
I narrowed it down that sys_setup() in fs/filesystems.c gets called
twice on the kmin and only once on the MAXine and there I bumped my head,
how is sys_setup() called? Same thing as with dec_entry().
FYI, enabling CONFIG_VT makes CONFIG_PROM_CONSOLE conflict with the
Sparc one. I'm in favour using a frambuffer console and compiling the
core frambuffer code in the kernel I discovered this.
