One option is to unpack the initrd that gets built by mkinitrd, add the
required modules, modify the init script to reflect your changes, then
pack it back up replacing the faulty initrd.

I never tried this so I don't know if there is anything else done by
mkinitrd that would be required. You could try it and see what happens.
