This worked for me as well. It is strange that I don't need this enabled on my other box though. But this one is x86 2.6.37-r4 while the other one is amd64 2.6.38-r6

I guess the problem is related to this bug:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=368597

I think there are missing device nodes in the lates stage3 tarball.

I am having this problem. I am using hardened 2.6.37.rc7(if I remember correctly). Both DEVTMPFS are DEVTMPFS_MOUNT are enabled. I was running a non multi library and did not have this problem. Then I reformatted my root system and installed a hardened multi library, and that is when switch_root gets stuck at init-early.sh with greatest stack depth messages. I'm using my old .config and the same kernel, so everything is the same(except for multi library).

after 4 days of useless trouble shooting and pain, thanks.

I think it's important to point out it's ok to use devtmpfs(which uses tempfs). the problem was with udev not starting...which is supposed to takes over(not sure overlap would be the correct term) the /dev previously populated by the kernel after switch_root.

I think it is not preferred over tmpfs, but to fix nodes problem in stage tarballs. Since we experienced the problem with a working gentoo install with correct nodes. This is the problem with the new kernels like 2.6.39. The nodes problem is another issue regardless of kernel version, I guess.

Same thread related issue here, and when I enabled DEVTMPFS and DEVTMPFS_MOUNT together it worked fine!

ya, the old openrc used to start udev(from what i read)...new one doesn't. so after manually deleting null and creating the 3 static nodes in /dev, i had to have sysvinit start it. i just created a softlink rather than used rc-update.

For those who might encounter the same problem.
See the requirement section of the udev readme, it liste the required kernel options you have to enable/disable.
