mkinitrd still failing on cciss

mkinitrd is still failing to work on hardware with cciss drive controllers as of the Mar 3 daily build net install. These controllers have the filesystems in:


The cciss stuff is now (thankfully) working with the partitioner instead of the garbled output from before, but not yet on this step. Below I have posted the outut from /var/log/messages


Selecting previously deselected package kernel-image-2.4-386.
Unpacking kernel-image-2.4-386 (from .../kernel-image-2.4-386_2.4.25-1_i386.deb)
Setting up kernel-image-2.4.25-1-386 (2.4.25-1) ...

 You are attempting to install a kernel version that is the same as
 the version you are currently running (version 2.4.25-1-386). The modules
 list is quite likely to have been changed, and the modules dependency
 file /lib/modules/2.4.25-1-386/modules.dep needs to be re-built. It can
 not be built correctly right now, since the module list for the
 running kernel are likely to be different from the kernel installed.
 I am creating a new modules.dep file, but that may not be
 correct. It shall be regenerated correctly at next reboot.

 I repeat: you have to reboot in order for the modules file to be
 created correctly. Until you reboot, it may be impossible to load
 some modules. Reboot as soon as this install is finished (Do not
 reboot right now, since you may not be able to boot back up until
 installation is over, but boot immediately after). I can not stress
 that too much. You need to reboot soon.

Please Hit return to continue. /usr/sbin/mkinitrd: Cannot determine root device
