I don't use modules either (except scsi_wait_scan.ko; you cannot get
rid of that one), I use dracut, and I can su just fine.

Dale, can you please post the dracut comand you used to create your
initramfs? Also, the DRACUT_MODULES you have defined, and the contents
of /etc/dracut.conf?

Not being able to su sounds incredible weird.

Regards.
