Yes, /bin/sh works. I've also run different /sbin/init programs successfully
(sysvinit, busybox; I think I mentioned sysvinit worked in my original post).
It's just with simpleinit from util-linux 2.12r that we've seen this issue.

Okay, I did this, but /sbin/init still hangs in the same place. I also had to
delete the copy_user_highpage function in arch/mips/mm/init.c to get the kernel
to build. It's now using the copy_user_highpage from include/linux/highmem.h.
I assume this was your intention?
