No.  Sorry--that was two different ideas/thoughts...

I'd look at the traces to make sure that nothing is getting hung up on
the wire (and perhaps put some code in the kernel to ensure that
everything on the wire makes it into the kernel on the 405 system).

If init dies, the kernel will print a message on the console.  It
sounds like that's not happening, so I wouldn't suspect any problem
with dynamic loading right now.
