I thought the point of initrd was that everything didn't need to be
compiled into the kernel, not even the root device. I suspect tweaking
the initrd image is all that would be required for a stock kernel to
boot. Add the module to /etc/mkinitrd/modules and re-build the initrd
image. Installing a standard kernel package should build the initrd
image for you.
