Actually, there's an issue with running Fedora 14 like that.  The system
works, but its init eats up the CPU by doing:

waitid(P_ALL, 0, {}, WNOHANG|WEXITED|WSTOPPED|WCONTINUED, NULL) = 0
clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {965693, 603959040}) = 0
select(5, [0 3 4], [], [4], NULL)       = 1 (in [0])
read(0, "", 1)                          = 0
waitid(P_ALL, 0, {}, WNOHANG|WEXITED|WSTOPPED|WCONTINUED, NULL) = 0
clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {965693, 604162040}) = 0
select(5, [0 3 4], [], [4], NULL)       = 1 (in [0])
read(0, "", 1)                          = 0
waitid(P_ALL, 0, {}, WNOHANG|WEXITED|WSTOPPED|WCONTINUED, NULL) = 0
clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {965693, 604351040}) = 0
select(5, [0 3 4], [], [4], NULL)       = 1 (in [0])

So we only have proper support for up to Fedora 13 now.
