Strange, I'm running my kernels with the modules packaged inside the initramfs
and never met this problem even after this commit (my 4.9 kernels are still
packaged this way and run fine). And yes, I do have TMPFS enabled. I can't
tell whether tmpfs or ramfs was used however given that at this level I don't
have all the tools available to report the FS type (and proc says "rootfs").
Are you sure you're not missing anything ?
