For the record I did get burnt by that one and I did make a huge stink
about it.

I used to be able to avoid initrd entirely on every single one of my
boxes, even my machines with qla2xxx based root filesystems, and that
changeset basically meant the end of that.

I simply don't do much hacking on that particular machine any more,
it's not worth the pain just to get a kernel that boots on it.

Yes, I know I can do stupid things like use the dist's initrd image
and just ignore the module version warnings, which is what Linus
happens to do, but that's just too gross for my tastes.
