Maybe it will be better if i'll (cross) compile some modules from
backported sources for you and you will backup yours, and copy that in

Also it's better to organize `/etc/initramfs-tools/modules' from your's
current lsmod and testing `initramfs.conf' with `MODULES=list', thus you
will have working-testing initrd, and boot option "break=init" (or mount,
see initramfs-tools(8)) will bring shell to you and you can scroll
boot messages or dmesg | more.

no need, if `break' boot option used. And all we need is just driver
loading, no files system or other things.
