Yes, I think that is a good idea.  I believe that if no partitions are
mounted you should see something along the lines of:

sata_sil               15305  4294967295

I get the feeling a boot time the system is not detecting any drives
attached to the controller since the driver is not being loaded.  I would
use the --with=sata_sil parameter in creating the new initrd file.

FYI, the generated initrd file is just a gzipped cpio file.  So, you can
easily list the contents by using:

zcat initrd_name | cpio -it
