So basename also should be placed to initrd? ;)  I think that
problem should be resolved at a first place (in mkinitrd), not
by putting numerous workarounds all other the place.
BTW, bash have nice construct ${var##*/} to be used instead of
basename, and it works *much* faster (also ${var%/*} for dirname
