Simple uname(2) wrapper to work around a CrashPlan bug and enable real-time watching
View crashplan_uname.c
* Simple uname(2) wrapper library that appends ".0" to any release version
* of the form X.Y -- for example, "3.16-2-amd64" becomes "3.16.0-2-amd64".
* This crude hack is meant to work around a CrashPlan bug[*]: real-time
* watching is only enabled after checking the kernel version for inotify
* support (which was added in 2.6.13), but the version is expected to be of
* the form X.Y.Z. If this is not the case, CrashPlan assumes that inotify
* is not supported, and real-time watching is disabled.

Simple init process to start basic services and get a root shell with job control
# Simple /sbin/init replacement that runs all runlevel S scripts, then drops
# into a root shell, in an infinite loop.
# Using this script as "init=" is similar to using the "single" boot parameter,
# but doesn't require a password, and logging out won't resume booting. And
# unlike "init=/bin/sh", this provides job control and runs the basic scripts.
