    That's simply not true, at least not for Debian. If you actually use the
    distro tools [1] the only assumptions are made at kernel *installation*
    time, not at kernel build time.

    I've been using initramfs-tools generated initrds for years without
    problems, and that includes "root on LVM on LUKS encrypted partition"
    and "root on LVM on RAID" setups.


    [1] I.e. if you build and install the kernel as a .deb package using e.g.
    the deb-pkg target or kernel-package.
