    Sorry, got sidetracked by other stuff.

    Still no boot with 2.9.20-rc1 and -rc2, and none of the kernels I tried in

    initrd is sane (the only differences between the one built for working and broken 2.6.20-rc2 are among the modules themselves). What I
    did was:

    cd /tmp
    mkdir ird-$version
    cd ird-$version
    zcat /boot/initrd-$version.img | cpio -i

    and then "diff -Nur ird-$1 ird-$2". Now to teach diff(1) to compare devices

    Tried latest from Fedora rawhide (mkinitrd-6.0.6-1), no boot. initrd is
    huge, so I went back to mkinitrd-5.1.19-1.
