Well that would kill it, but also mkinitrd can do the wrong thing and
miss out copying critical modules. You can regenerate the initrd fairly
easily using mkinitrd by hand.
If you want to see what modules are in the initrd, you can use this plan
cp /boot/initrd-blah.img /tmp/initrd
gunzip -S .img initrd-blah.img
cpio -i <initrd-blah
ls -l lib
