Ok should be fixed with mkinitfs-2.6.0-r3

Please make sure that you have mkinitfs-2.6.0-r3 before rebooting.

If your root is on ext4 then you can verify that kernel module deps are
there with:

$ gunzip -c /boot/initramfs-grsec | cpio -t | grep -E 'fs/(ext|mb)'
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext2
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext2/ext2.ko
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext4
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext4/ext4.ko
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext3
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/ext3/ext3.ko
lib/modules/3.13.7-0-grsec/kernel/fs/mbcache.ko

If mbcache.ko is not there, it will not boot. If its there it should be
ok. (this was fixed in -r3)

Again sorry.
