I heard somewhere that if depmod produces unreliable results when
running a different kernel, then the initrd image that mkinitrd builds
will be faulty. Or does ther initrd image also have a copy of depmod?

So I presume that any problems that use to occur no longer occur.

I thought the solution was to tell depmod to use the System.map
file of the appropriate kernel.

Of course, I could be mistaken... I hardly keep up-to-date here.
