Yes it does ignore the issue of kernel modules. It's quite hard for 
lvmcreate_initrd to know just which modules are needed to get the system booted,
though I suppose it's possible.

It is recommended that you build the kernel with the drivers needed to mount the
root partition compiled in, rather than as modules. I realise this goes against
the Red Hat methodology of having everything as a module.
