It was the debug stuff; every line that look like

"dracut: + stuff here"

was debugging information; AFAICT dracut mounted /dev/sda3 
as root then it mounted the two other partitions it found.

But this could be a problem (from your other email):

root@fireball / # dracut -H -f /boot/init-thingy
E: Dracut module "lvm" cannot be found.
E: Dracut module "lvm" cannot be found.

dracut couldn't find it's lvm module, even though your USE 
flags are set correctly. Can you try re-emerging dracut with 
its current USE flags?

You should have a folder in /usr/lib/dracut/modules named 
'lvm' that has a 'module-setup.sh' script in it, plus 
probably some other support files, if everything got 
installed correctly.
