    That _usually_ just means that /sbin/modprobe is corrupt, or compiled with
    a binfmt that itself needs a module to load.

    Are you 100% certain that you didn't just happen to put an /sbin/modprobe
    into your initramfs that happens to be a.out, with a.out being modular? Or
    something similarly silly?

    Actually, with that "binfmt-0000", I guess the most likely thing is a
    corrupt /sbin/modprobe that isn't a valid binfmt format at all (but the
    kernel won't know the difference between a missing binfmt thing and an
    invalid one). It has bytes 2/3 being zero, which is neither ELF nor
    a.out, methinks.

    BUT! If that's not it, doing a "git bisect" to figure out exactly what
    triggered it would be a wonderful idea..
