I just tried it running dracut in a chroot from mga1, and got the
bigger initramfs.

It still fails to mount /usr, unless I break at pre-pivot and manually run
lvm vgchange -a y

I think that should be done before looking for the root filesystem,
or swap, etc.

I also still get the pata_acpi loading before pata_via, which makes my
hard drives hd? instead of sd?, and stops /dev/sr0 from being created.
