It follows symlink when copying shell, so IMO it's ok to commit.

Anyway created initrd won't work on PLD kernels due to other reason
- we don't have ext2 compiled into kernel; all filesystems
except ROMFS are compiled as modules because are kernels are highly
modularized (ROMFS is used on our initrd ramdisks). It will be nice
thing to see support for other FSes when creating ramdisks in
lvmcreate_initrd. Our tool for generating initrd ramdisks (geninitrd)
can use rom, ext2 and cram as FS but it doesn't support lvm yet :-)
