This uses settrans and to create a ramdisk of 32 MiB by routing
a thusly sized zero store through the copy store, connecting
that to the
ramdisk0 node, create a
ext2 filesystem on it, and replace the
translator running on the
ramdisk0 node with a instance of the
translator running on the same node ( ).
It is a open issue hurd why this does only work with
ext2fs.static, but not the dynamically linked
/hurd/ext2fs: Translator died).
A (better) alternative would be using the
translator, but that one is broken at the moment.
