comment How can I remotely debug a broken initrd?
Can you provide more details on this box? Manufacturer? Vendor? Versioning information? Simply crashing in on a Linux based application from another Vendor/Manufacturer is not a good idea as there may be internal system modifications that make your changes either dangerous or not effective.

comment Does Linux unmount the root partition when the partition is about 80% full?
Hmmm....why continue to use reiserfs? This is old and basically no longer support. Why not switch to something like ext4?

Just for curiosity how much extra CPU time do you think that you will be getting here? Is it worth going outside the "norm"?

comment Explanation of version build time as opposed to version number, eg OpenSSL 1.0.1e versus h
I have noticed this type of behavior when getting patches from large vendor supported linux systems (red hat). But they do put a sub-sub version number.
