Great ! No better way to catch those pesky build issues early.

Cool, thanks !

Yup, that one's always a nasty site-specific dependency. One way
to make it a bit less ugly would be to set it to something like
$(INITRAMFS_ROOT) and then pass the actual location via an
environment variable.

I actually turn off the whole Glamo from time to time when building
for my GTA02 with sick uSD. So that path already gets exercised.
But yes, the next round of kernel diet can wait a little.

and there's a nice weekend ahead ... :)
