Why not? On mounting the /, the kernel's builtin autodetection is used.
Later, "mount" uses its heuristic, and I did not hear about big problems
in last months. Only if the ext2 module has been loaded after ext3,
there may be problems, but this would be fixed with the mentioned patch.

It is a patch for mkinitrd
