It won't do anything since it creates the symlink under /bin on the
initrd image. A quick look at the busybox sources seems to indicate that
it will behave like a mini-implementation of 'init'. So if you created
an /etc/inittab and make the link a /linuxrc it would prob. behave like
'init'.

Most of what I've read seems to indicate that the /linuxrc thingy is
being deprecated though, and that most things should use '/sbin/init'
instead. That's what this script does. Not sure what the kernel does if
you have a /linuxrc _and_ a /sbin/init though...

I'll go ahead and remove the linuxrc link from my hosted copy of the
script...
