Maybe I'm wrong here, but I had the same problem at some point and my
solution was to rename /linuxrc (to /linux, and booting with init=/linux).
I believe the code which special cases /linuxrc might be in the way here.

Maybe you want to try this, if it helps I think Documentation/initrd.txt
needs to be updated.
