By init do you mean the init_task_union? That's in the data segment and not
static. is needed but it's also executable. It boots fine under other
kernels. I either have this problem with 2.4.19 or the 2.4.18 problem where
kfree doesn't free any memory and the system eventually runs out of memory
because of the buffer caches. I'd love to get 2.4.19 booting because then I
wouldn't have to mess with a problem with 2.4.16 from SF where the
current->user gets set to 0 somewhere in kernel_thread and crashes in
do_fork. I know the kfree works on 2.4.19 because the system doesn't freeze
up when the rom block driver tries to call fsync_dev in rom_release like it
does on the 2.4.18. (It freezes up in sync_inodes)

I'm about to look for a new job here. :)
