this is fixed with latest udev from unstable, please upgrade and
update-initramfs -u -t
the bug report is about missing sysfs support by the sparc sbus drivers,
thus the appropriate drivers don't get loaded by udev and need
to be specified before image creation on /etc/mkinitramfs/modules
or handloaded in the emergency busybox shell on boot.
