In an embedded system it is recommended to set CONFIG_DESKTOP=n.
While busybox is working with CONFIG_DESKTOP=y, I get an error message
while booting
"request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c"

I searched for solution in net, but found only something regarding 32
and 64bit OS.
Si I have no clue, what's the problem here.

Used current busybox 1.18.1, compiled for arm.

Best regards
