Euh, I'm also lost in all those PowerPC sub architectures ...
Seeing the chrp initrd being used on prep doesn't help neither.
The thing I'm trying to say is that having initrds named with a matching title.
So an initrd-prep for prep and initrd-chrp for chrp
or an initrd-chrp-prep if it can be use for bot sub archs.
