Hmmm. I would actually not mind trying that at all.

But how do I get my root (and only) FS to be JFFS2? It's not an option
in the installer. And it's certainly not an option on the LiveCD that
I've been using for my installs. Is there a way to convert it after
the fact?

I might explore that a little bit. I still find myself perplexed about
how the initrd could be causing the problem I see with logging in. By
the time I see the log in prompt, isn't the initrd long gone?

And yet, recompiling the initrd after kernel upgrade fixes the issue somehow.

My head hurts.
