A chroot doesn't have enough info to reliably run mkinitrd on RedHat.
I'm assuming the same is true for Debian and mkinitramfs. Things
like volumegroups work fine - the usual problem is device drivers.
Mkinitrd has --with to include specific drivers. For instance,
mkinitrd -v --omit-scsi-modules --with=xenblk --with=xennet initrd-2.6.9-100.ELxenU.img 2.6.9-100.ELxenU
To include xen drivers for a virtual machine or
mkinitrd -v --with=megaraid ...
