This (or lack thereof) turned out to be the nasty busbox sh crash (and kernel init
panic) on ARC based off rebased upstream (latest RV32 from Alistair) containing
the original patch f4349837d93b4df. I tried this fixup and it seems to work. The
DT_INIT entry goes away and init does run as part of init_array.

It seems that commit also removed init_array from sysdeps/{riscv,csky}/Implies -
so newer arches. I suppose I need to do that for ARC as well - but could you
please explain (or point to documentation) which explains how this the Implies
stuff works.

And an arch is !ELF_INITFINI if it supports initarray ?
I did switch ARC gcc [1] / binutils [2]to initarray last year
