Kernel installation (2.4.27) failed because the initrd could not be
generated. dmsetup is missing.

Root is on a DM device, but dmsetup not installed
Failed to create initrd image.

Same happens with 2.6.8.

Manually installing dmsetup as /target/sbin/dmsetup before installing
the base system cures the problem. The dmsetup package must be part of
the base system to solve this permanently.
