That's basicly the same for a native compiled kernel with egcs after
changing mipsel-linux-ld in arch/mips/dec/boot/Makefile to $(LD).

After running /etc/rc.d/rc.sysconfig the fun with init starts:

Enabling swap space.
Initializing random number generator...
INIT: chld_handler: marked 6 as zombie
INIT: got SIGCHLD
INIT: Child died, PID= 6
INIT: Checking for children to start
INIT: SYSINIT -> BOOT
INIT: init_main: waiting..

INIT: Checking for children to start

These are the according times:
Starting with an entry from the boot server daemon.log file

and the messages file created by the DECstation

This was on the 5k/25 on the 133 init has the same speed. Currently an
Intel-box is compiling a kernel with gcc, with the same configuration,
see if that makes any difference.

Harald would you send me your .config and init?

Richard
