Is this a machine where you "cannot (don't want to) power-cycle"? In
that case, I suppose you could have a statically linked version of su,
possibly with reduced functionality.
Or is this a machine where "power-cycle + singleuser login" doesn't
work, not even when you use "boot -as" (or machine-specific equivalent)
and tell the kernel to run /rescue/init? I don't see how a /rescue/su
would be of any help here.
