 The exact panic message would be helpful, plus if init printed any
 messages before dying, please report those. However, if init really
 exited with code 12 (and not e.g. 13, or with *signal* 11) it means it
 couldn't open the console, so there won't be any.
 Before you start any testing, copy the working init to /sbin/oinit or
 /sbin/init.bak; then you can use it by booting with the -a flag.

 Probably not, but please file separate bug reports on them if they
 haven't already been fixed.
