Did you happen to update to dracut-016 before regenerating a working
initrd? I'm wondering if some patch magically fixed the issue (or even
the patch I put in late on the 015 series to fix a seemingly unrelated bug).

FWIW, others are seeing this still:
(again, I'm quietly hoping the updated version will fix it, but time
will tell).
