Bug Description

When generating initramfs geninitrd with bootsplash the kernel is in panic with unknown rootfs.
Same initrd without --with-bootsplash works well.

Following <shadzik>, with initramfs (default in pld):
bootsplash should be generated, named bootsplash, copied to initramfs' rootdir and finally, generated initramfs

e.g.
/bin/splash.bin -s -f /etc/bootsplash/themes/livecd/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg > $MOUNTDIR/bootsplash
and then find . | cpio stuff

dude, where's the version?!

anyway in mod-bootsplash.sh there are lines:

    for res in $BOOT_SPLASH_RESOLUTIONS; do
        if [ -f "/etc/bootsplash/themes/$THEME/config/bootsplash-$res.cfg" ]; then
            /bin/splash.bin -s -f "/etc/bootsplash/themes/$THEME/config/bootsplash-$res.cfg" >> "$target" && \
            debug "Added $res $THEME theme to initrd."
        else
            warn "/etc/bootsplash/themes/$THEME/config/bootsplash-$res.cfg doesn't exist, skipped"
        fi
    done

and $target being the final .gz file.

nevertheless, regenerate initrd with -v option and show the output.

when I moved:

if is_yes "$BOOT_SPLASH"; then
    initrd_gen_bootsplash "$target"
fi

before the

debug "Creating $INITRDFS image $IMAGE"

and changed
     initrd_gen_bootsplash "$target"
to
    initrd_gen_bootsplash "$DESTDIR/bootsplash"

it seemed to work, but don't know if it is proper resolution and doesn't break romfs.
