The uncool thing about this is that it's built on a custom kernel. To
build it, I followed the procedures on


Instead of following one of the branches, I specifically picked the
same commit that produced the kernel in 8.2.1:
a3e1b6fe884eb2d9eb9e9e3f3b718c113ac6cdd8 and edited the config file a
bit -- you'll have seen the patch with my changes.

In any case, the edited config file is in the xs-livecd repo now in
case we need to rebuild this.

If we can fix the problem with the initrd, then we can stop this
nonsense and use a vanilla kernel.
