Bug#663119: FATAL: Module multipath not found.
Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.101

Got a new error message--

Setting up initramfs-tools (0.101) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Processing triggers for dictionaries-common ...
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.3.0-rc6
FATAL: Module multipath not found.
Press return to continue.

The only real differences from stock on this system are
in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf:

and in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules I've added:

as this system is xfs on top of lvm on top of partitioned md raid1.
My kernel is (obviously) custom, I don't need or build either md or dm
multipath drivers. There's no reason not having them should be a
"fatal" error (the initrd.img is still built, I haven't tested it yet
or dug into the changes since 0.100 that introduced this message).
