My thanks to the Gentoo guys for showing succintly how to solve
the whole "/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
" problem when booting directly into a shell. With that and a call to /etc/init.d/rc, I got myself a simple script
to automatically login as root into runlevel S and stay there permanently:
while true; do
setsid sh -c 'exec login -f root </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1'
