Bug#501359: initramfs-tools: MODULES=dep does not like Xen virtual block devices

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92j
Severity: normal


when trying to build a small initramfs via MODULES=dep:

$ sudo update-initramfs -u
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-xen-686
mkinitramfs: missing xvda root /dev/xvda1 /sys entry
mkinitramfs: workaround is MODULES=most
mkinitramfs: Error please report the bug
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-xen-686

So here you are.  This virtual machine has a single virtual partition
(/dev/xvda1) imported, no /dev/xvda.
