Please update the changelog.

Can someone confirm the updated script also still works on Debian?

-BINFILES=${BINFILES:-"/lib/lvm-200/lvm /bin/bash /bin/busybox /sbin/pivot_root"}
+BINFILES=${BINFILES:-"`which lvm` `which bash` `which busybox` `which pivot_root`"}

Will 'which lvm' always give the same answer as before on Debian,
or, if not, does it matter?

-LIBFILES=`ldd $BINFILES 2>/dev/null | awk '{if (/=>/) { print $3 }}' | sort -u`
+LIBFILES=`ldd $BINFILES 2>/dev/null |grep -v linux-gate |grep -v : | awk '{if (/=>/) { print $3 } else if (/\//) { print $1 }}' | sort -u`

This needs a comment explaining what's going on (e.g. include sample 
output in the comment).  What's special about linux-gate?
And why not combine the two greps?  -E (linux-gate|:)
