Unfortunately, as far as I know currently this doesn't work in 
Debian.  Proper wishlist bug reports have been filled but we 
haven't come yet to a solution that is good for all developers.

Anyway, we may not expect that all initrd images are able to 
configure the console.

At least the keyboard has to be configured before fsck runs.
