Debian. Which probably explains this. I obviously looked for such a thing
before embarking on this, but didn't find anything. Debian uses a very
basic shell script for init within the initramfs, which does not appear to
parse out a vlan parameter.

I agree that a better approach here would be to use an existing pattern
already established in another distro. I'll look into implementing Fedora's
solution in Debian. Consider the patch withdrawn.
