Hey, sed should NOT be here.  Initrd exeists for exactly ONE version of
kernel, so you know what IOP that kernel uses and what usertools should
be placed to initrd BEFORE doing initrd, and sed can/should be used only
at initrd creation stage.  Idea: why not put to initrd ALL modules for
ALL kernels your system have, and update it each time you add a new
kernel to your system? ;)
