Yeah, my test was booting in qemu-system-sparc64 with both a virtio CD
and HD so I didn't get too far ;)

Compared to the older January image, if I exit to a shell in the
installer then the drivers/virtio directory in /lib/modules doesn't
exist anymore so they were definitely bundled in the initramfs in the past.

Okay. I do have the older ISO image to test with for the moment so
please consider it a request for a future enhancement :)
