Initramfs started, init pid is not 1, please help me


Board: i.MX6Q
Uboot:2019-04
kernel:4.1.15

My file system was built with buildroot-2019.02.9 and works fine on the board.I added the init script file under /, which is as follows:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
echo "sleep 10s"
sleep 10
echo "finished sleep"
echo "current pid is $$"
Use the following command for cpio packaging.
Code:
find . | cpio --create --format='newc' | gzip > ../ramdisk.img
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T ramdisk -C none -a 0x12c00000 -n "Label you want" -d ./ramdisk.img ./uramdisk.img
On the uboot command line, type the following command, copy the initramfs of the usb disk into the DDR, and start the kernel
Code:
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0
=> usb start;fatload usb 0 0x12c00000 uramdisk.img;fatload mmc 3:1 0x12000000 zImage;fatload mmc 3:1 0x18000000 topeet_9.7inch.dtb;run mfgtool_args;bootz ${loadaddr} ${initrd_addr} ${fdt_addr};

Starting kernel ...
After starting initramfs, I found that my /init file was not executed and the process in pid = 1 was {linuxrc} init.According to the busybox documentation, when the kernel goes into initramfs, it calls the /init file first with PID = 1,and can then use switch_root for system switching. But that's not what my board looks like. What's the problem?
