Certainly, I have *musl-gcc'ed* a trimmed down (no --help,
--version and the like, just brutal panics) switch_root.c as a
kind of *concept proof* a couple of days ago, similarly. (Not yet
tried it, still have to continue modifying it; it has been some
first and dirty musl-gcc exercise essentially.)

Let's say that I have my own disk- and filesystem layout
encrypted (here and there ... work in progress), and requiring to
enter a password for continuing booting. Also I don't use
anything (strictly speaking) *similar* to your init stages.
