Bug#661620: Recent hd-media initrd lacks ext4 support; d-i cannot find iso on such fs

Package: debian-installer
Version: testing

I just tried to install Debian the hd-media way, with recent initrd.gz and
vmlinuz from /debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer-i386/current/images/hd-media/

This initrd lacks ext4 support, and d-i is thus unable to find its installation
media, in my case the debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso I had placed on an ext4
partition on the same disk.

I think it would be reasonable to let the inirds contain ext4 support.
