Yes, that was (part of) the problem.

I ran mkinitrd and modified /etc/modprobe.conf to make sure the sata_via 
module gets loaded.  Now my system does find and activate the volume.

However, another error message which I've seen before but didn't list in 
my original mail since I thought it was a follow-up message caused by 
not finding the volume group is still present:
    mount: error 6 mounting ext3
    ERROR opening /dev/console!!!!: 2
