So, if I understand you correctly, the reason you can't fix this is
because you have no desire to support a configuration that was not
produced by debian-installer?
By this same logic, it seems to me that debian-installer should also
set 'rootfstype' on the kernel command line, so that the initramfs does
not have to detect that either.
