Bug#318120: initrd-tools: i2o-root not detected correctly

Package: initrd-tools
Severity: normal

when installing kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686-smp on a box with i2o-RAID:

Setting up kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686-smp (2.6.8-16) ...
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: /dev/i2o/hda2: Unknown root device
                    Please refer to the manual page.
Failed to create initrd image.
dpkg: error processing kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686-smp (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 9
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The root should in fact be /dev/i2o/hda1. Would love to supply a patch
but I'm a bit lost when looking at /usr/sbin/mkinitrd...
