Keep watching initscritps-git, it will change again slightly before I
release it. I hope to keep the hooks API stable after the next
initscripts release though.
Were you able to remove all your hacks that needed to compare the
arguments of stat_busy and stat_done calls to fixed strings? I
particularly disliked those.

We cannot depend on the initramfs in the real system - once the root is
mounted and the system is started, it's a new game.
I don't know how to solve this right away, can you open a bug report
(haha ...) - seriously, we need a clean way to move this code, I'll
think about it.
