Yes, I found the root of the problem... it's hotplug, which shouldn't be 
enabled during the early boot. So, I just "chmod 644 /sbin/hotplug", then I 
created /init:
echo "Running networkboot prescript"
/bin/chmod 755 /sbin/hotplug
exec /sbin/init </dev/console >/dev/console 2>&1
and made initramfs with it.
