    Certainly on debian make-kpkg actually does have options for initrd
    (--initrd) and will call mkinitrd/update-initramfs/yaird at package
    install time to generate an initrd for the kernel to deal with raid,
    lvm, etc. It works quite well in general.

    I would be surprised if redhat didn't do something similar.
