If things would be that easy...

Snippets from a slight modification to mount_root() in fs/super.c

for (fs_type = file_systems ; fs_type ; fs_type = fs_type->next) {
printk("VFS: Processing %s\n",fs_type->name);
if (!(fs_type->fs_flags & FS_REQUIRES_DEV))
if (!try_inc_mod_count(fs_type->owner))
printk("VFS: Trying %s\n",fs_type->name);

And now the results during boot (snippets again):

VFS: Processing bdev
VFS: Processing proc
VFS: Processing sockfs
VFS: Processing tmpfs
VFS: Processing pipefs
VFS: Processing ext2
VFS: Trying ext2
VFS: Processing msdos
VFS: Trying msdos
VFS: Processing vfat
VFS: Trying vfat
VFS: Processing iso9660
VFS: Trying iso9660
VFS: Processing nfs
VFS: Processing reiserfs
VFS: Trying reiserfs
Kernel Panic: ...

This clearly shows that there's definitely something going _very_ wrong.
Best bet is loading/decompression of initrd. As far as I'm following the list
there were initrd modifications discussed/done by Alexander Viro/Andrea
