[rhelv6-list] initrd and kickstarting

Since rhel3 I have been making custom initrd files by removing hba drivers to ensure a SAN safe pxe/kickstart build.  It used to be that a race condition could make a SAN presented device /dev/sda, instead of the first local scsi drive, and thus the OS would install there.  

Does anyone know if I should continue this practice with rhel6 initrd files or has this problem been resolved?
