Summary: Creates an initial ramdisk image for preloading modules
Mkinitrd creates filesystem images for use as initial ramdisk (initrd)
images.  These ramdisk images are often used to preload the block
device modules (SCSI or RAID) needed to access the root filesystem.

In other words, generic kernels can be built without drivers for any
SCSI adapters which load the SCSI driver as a module.  Since the
kernel needs to read those modules, but in this case it isn't able to
address the SCSI adapter, an initial ramdisk is used.  The initial
ramdisk is loaded by the operating system loader (normally LILO) and
is available to the kernel as soon as the ramdisk is loaded.  The
ramdisk image loads the proper SCSI adapter and allows the kernel to
mount the root filesystem.  The mkinitrd program creates such a
ramdisk using information found in the /etc/modules.conf file.

  - support 2.5 thx to Andrey Borzenkov <arvidjaar@mail.ru>:

      kernel (where modprobe -c cannot be used). Use either /etc/modules.conf
      or /etc/modprobe.conf

      foolproof but should do as long as modprobe.conf is kept consistent

      install it as insmod on non-dietlibc archs if version >= 2.5

    - added checks to load the modules i2o_block needs
    - skip errors finding jbd as a module if we're skipping them trying to find
    ext3 so that you can build a kernel with ext3 built-in and still use an
    initrd (MDK: we don't have ext3 yet, but we'll have it soon)
