There's a rootdelay=nn option since 2.6.12 or .13. Therefore, an initrd
is no longer required. This works for sure with IEEE1394 (Firewire)
disks, but should also with USB disks.

Example with Firewire:

Real computer scientists despise the idea of actual hardware.  Hardware has
limitations, software doesn't.  It's a real shame that Turing machines are
so poor at I/O.
