comment Why do I need initramfs ?
I don't think there is uncertainty either, just different interpretations on OP's question: taken literally, initramfs maybe unavoidable in the kernel, but from the perspective of the choice offered by the kernel configuration tool, which (seemingly) proposes initramfs as an option among several (sd,jffs), do you think that this point is as important? Or is it that OP misunderstood that section of the configuration (honestly, it's been a while since my last kernel compilation, so I couldn't tell)? Anyway, I understand that you are passionate about these matters, and it's a good thing imho.

comment Why do I need initramfs ?
I don't see where there is fear in other answers or comments, I only see disagreement. You are the one shifting the discussion by bringing up that term. If you think that the question should be taken literally, then perhaps you should consider how your words would be appreciated if taken literally. Anyway, I was merely pointing out a possible reason as to why you got downvoted; it may or may not be the case, it's just my opinion.

comment TTY1 message help? (with picture)
Here's what debian says about this driver: wiki.debian.org/brcm80211 apparently these messages are harmless. Most probably they were showing up before but you did not notice them (because GUI).

comment TTY1 message help? (with picture)
I believe that brcmsmac is a broadcom device driver dealing with OSI layer 2 network stuff. It seems certain things aren't implemented yet, and the driver issues warning about it. Could it be related to the later issue, I don't know. I would try to boot in maintenance mode (you should have that at the boot prompt), and look at the system logs (/var/log/syslog) as a first step.

comment How to investigate a random reset on TCP client port connected via loopback interface to a server
My guess would be that the stress put on the stack has one connection fall in timeout client side at half open state. That connection is dropped (which means that the client app should see it as a ETIMEDOUT), and when the syn/ack is finally processed by the stack, there are no more connections to relate it to, and thus it gets reset. Did you try raising the size of the syn backlog (sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_max_syn_backlog=???)?

I think the problem is that you approached it agressively: you said "it's incorrect", which is a binary, unforgiving statement, where you could have said: "it's correct, up to that little point which I think is worth being mentioned". Just changing your tone, and not using the word "FUD", which does not mean what you think it means (you are incorrect), would do a lot in your opinion being better accepted.

comment What are the two head.S files in linux source ?
They both correspond to a kernel boot entry point (for an unconpressed and compressed kernel).

comment where can I find the MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE in the user side?
You probably need to generate it: if your session works without it, it means that you've disabled auth on server side somehow (maybe xhost +?). Try a xauth export of the relevant keys on the server, followed by a xauth merge of the generated file on the client.
