Maybe the initscripts have problems coping with the new layout

SuSE's /sbin/getcfg for one uses libsysfs, which apparently doesn't
follow symlinks (bounces off symlink and does nutty stuff instead). If
any of the boxen you're having troubles with use libsysfs in their init
stuff, that's likely the problem.
If that is what's happening, then the problem is breaking previously
working boxes by changing a userspace API. I don't know exactly which
patch broke it, but reverting all Greg's patches (except USB) from
-mm fixes the issue.
