I have written my own version with the equivalent option. I also
reworked the script so it works the same way as the mkinitrd script,
reading the /etc/modules.conf to build a list of modules to include as
well as adding an option to specify the filesystems modules which are
required in the image. And using losetup to manage the loopback device.

I am trying to make my kernel as modularized as possible to limit its
size. So, all my filesystems are modules as well as drivers for my SCSI
peripherals, I added an option to specify the filesystems modules
required in the image. Still need some work. However, if you need a copy
I can send it to you. I found it a little bit difficult to maintain, I
tried to make better usage of functions.
