binary naming

Hi again,

I fixed the file naming and I don't need to rename the files anymore (I 
forgot to prepend the correct directory in the cpio archive).
With the cpio initramfs I chdir into /genode from the ROM session and 
correctly find the libraries. Yet the segfault and warning I described 
in the last mail still appear.

To reproduce the problem with the current state, check out [1]. The 
build configuration is the same as in the last mail.
