Can you test the sid mkinitrd or is that the same version. That bug
was reported some time ago and should have been fixed by now.
Actualy the real culprit for that file is e2fsprogs. You need at least
1.35-7. From the changelog:
* Filter out linux-gate.so, which is a pseudo entry for the 32->64bit
translation for amd64 systems, in the initrd creation script.
I installed current sid/unstable e2fsprogs (1.36release-1), and the
initrd installation problem seems to have been resolved. I do still see
a warning "cpio: (0x00000000): No such file or directory", but now it
doesn't seem to be fatal. Thanks for your help!
Should there be something added to the amd64 documentation? Or maybe
dependencies for the amd64 kernels such that e2fsprogs must be at least
