This is my issue as well.  I tried to make a init* to deal with this and 
have yet to get one to work, not one single working boot up.  I have 
tried different howtos and not one of them produced anything that 
works.  I have not found a dracut howto that makes any sense either.  
Sorry but genkernel left a bad taste in my mouth ages ago.

As bad as I hate to even use a init*, I hate even worse being told I 
have to have one and not being able to get one to work following the 
docs.  There needs to be some really well tested docs for people to use 
before this kicks in.

Now to go brush my teeth.  :/   This init* thingy tastes really bad.

Miss the compile output?  Hint:
