Hah! Figured it out -- the link was the key. The upd-instroot just has
mke2fs and mkfs.ext2 listed as keepfiles, and not mkfs.ext3. rpm2cpio
apparently extracts the names but the actual file with the data is in
mkfs.ext3 -- all three files need to be on the to-extract list, and then
suddenly everything works fine.

In case anyone cares. :)
