    hello,

    i build a small linux-system using busybox. when i add the latest e2fsprogs (1.41.9) i get this message at boot:

    1. …..
    2. EXT3-fs warning: maximal mount
        count reached, running e2fsck is
        recommended
    3. EXT3 FS on hda2, internal journal
    4. EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with
        writeback  data mode
    5. VFS: mounted root (ext3 filesystem)
        on device 3:2
    6. Freeing unused kernel memory: 400k
        freed
    7. tune2fs 1.41.9 (22-Aug-2009)
    8. Usage: …. all the usagemsg here
        …
    9. Kernel panic - not syncing:
        attempted to kill init!

    without e2fsprogs, the system boots fine. the message even appears if i delete only tune2fs from the cf-card.
