I don't know that rootfs but it looks like there is no init.

UML core dumps at panic() by design.

Sure, my great plan is to destroy Linux. I work for Microsoft. ;-)

Seriously, my plan is to get rid of SUBARCH, that's why I did not push your 
patches
upstream and I've send the rid of SUBARCH patch series.
It turned out that other archs depend on SUBARCH too therefore some more 
thinking is needed.
Time passed, merge window closed, $dayjob needed some attention...

That said, your "arch/um: make it work with defconfig and x86_64" patch is also 
not perfect.
"make defconfig ARCH=um SUBARCH=x86" will create x86_64 defconfig, which is 
wrong and breaks existing
setups.
Secondly, what stops you from running "make defconfig ARCH=um SUBARCH=x86_64" 
to run your x86_64 bit
userspace?

Thanks,
