Many complex storage environments running within GNL/Linux could benefit from increased disassembly and resource remediation during shutdown. Underdog an alternate /init to create a "late" user context to resume control during shutdown to park media and detach network devices.

Currently there is a fully working initramfs (mkinitramfs/mkinitrd) replacement that is capable of building the early user context images both as separate files or built into the kernel image.

The working proof of concept code for the alternate /init is too messy to sahre just now. /doh.
