 exit 11 from init means that it ran MAKEDEV to create /dev/console,
 and MAKEDEV ran, or at least forked, but /dev/console didn't appear.
 Without a console it's difficult to figure out what happened, but
 since it's an nfs root you might be able to check the following:
    - did MAKEDEV get read? (that is, did its atime change?)
    - did /bin/sh get read?
    - did /dev get written to? (did its mtime change?)
 Also you might get further, or at least get more ability to see what's
 happening, by explicitly creating devices in the nfs root beforehand.
