You make this sound like some major big deal. are you running your own
distribution? In most cases mkinitrd does the right thing when you "make
install" the kernel, and if you are doing something in the build so
complex that it needs options, you really should understand the options
and be sure you're doing what you want.

Generally this involves preloading a module or two, and if you need it
every time you probably should have built it in, anyway.

My opinion...
