Default Bug#508178: initramfs-tools: Missing modules.dep in initrd image

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92j
Severity: normal

When building my own version of the Linux kernel, the generated initrd
does not contain the modules.dep file.
At early stage of boot, I get alerts saying :
modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/modules/2.6.26-doofi/modules.dep:
no such file or directory
I cannot get the alerts in my logs (even with bootlogd enabled).

Since my kernel has built in support for many devices it still runs fine
after the alerts but this bug might be the same as #499231 since the
alerts appeared recently (and I have no other version of initramfs-tools
to check).

Manually re-creating the initrd image solves the problem but
update-initramfs (and mkinitramfs) build initrd images missing the
modules.dep file.

I built the debian package with :
# make-kpkg --revision 0.5 --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd kernel_image

There is an Ubuntu report of this bug :

I also found so information at
but my kernel config file does already specify a local version for the
kernel (mine is CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-doofi").
