Oops. Looks like you got bit by the infamout loop fs bug. It didn't get
fixed until 2.4.3. If you can, boot into a different kernel version and
run mkinitrd. Also, if I recall correctly, there was a link to a patch
which corrected it on < 2.4.3 kernels - sorry I don't have the link
handy. I had the same problem here, but I have both devel and stable
branches built concurrently and used the devel branch to run mkinitrd.

Has any one seen this problem.
