Greetings,

Often when I build systems with catalyst I encounter the following

kernel freeze after the boot loader has completed:
[ ... lots of kernel loading stuff which seems ok ... ]
Freeing unused kernel memory: 172k freed
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000

I had an issue with the same symptoms. It turned out that after some builds, the initramfs would contain empty files instead of links to busybox.

In my case, the only way I could get it to work consistently was to patch genkernel to use symbolic links instead, when setting up the initramfs.

It would be nice if you would file a bug about this with as much information as you have.
