Thank you for pointing me in that direction. If it works that way, it's reassuring. At this moment I am not sure how to build a d-i image with a custom kernel and initrd to test it.

Do you know if this is d-i parsing /proc/cmdline, or if this function is in mkinitramfs or modprobe? If it is in the output of mkinitramfs I missed it grepping it's temporary output when building an initrd.

I still think it would be nice if this "just worked"(tm) no matter how
the module is compiled or when it is loaded.
