Hi ,
I downloaded the latest version of linux-3.11.8 ,configured it as UML and got the statically compiled binary (linux).

Then i downloaded the latest busybox 1.21.1 and compiled with default configuration. Then i converted the busybox binary into a  ext4 filesystem.

while running linux as UML,

./linux ubda=./busybox mem=128M

i'm getting the following error

 EXT4-fs (ubda): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
[    1.170000] VFS: Mounted root (ext4 filesystem) readonly on device 98:0.
