I failed first because I was just calling mkinitrd on the host system, which
runs a different kernel from the one I boot the workstations with. So I
need to call mkinitramfs -o ... -d <kernelver>. Once I saw that it was
obvious enough. (and since I don't install the kernel on the host, I do
this chrooted in the fai nfsroot, after adding initramfs-tools there.)

I wonder if getting rid of the fai-kernels package and making this the
default method by integrating this into make-fai-nfsroot would be worth it?
Not having to care about a fai kernel might be a Good Thing(tm)...
No good deed goes unpunished.
