My money would be on udev 169-1. An initrd generated with that installed
breaks the radeon kernel module here. Try downgrading udev (and probably
at least libudev0 and libudev-dev as well) to 168-2 and run

sudo update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.38-2-powerpc

to verify if you're suffering from a udev 169-1 regression as well.
