Just for the record, YOU update for SuSE 9.1 of this patch forgets to
run mkinitrd. The most visible problem is the missing splash in tty1.
It is not the first time this happens.

If we want to do this manually, what is the proper invocation?
If everything is stock, mkinitrd will suffice. man mkinitrd for more info. If customized, an example is
mkinitrd -k vmlinuz2611 -i initrd2611 -m "jbd,ext" -s 1280x1024. If there is no -m, it takes which modules from /etc/sysconfig/kernel INITRD_MODULES. Default kernel image is vmlinuz, default initrd is initrd. If no -s it takes its size from grub's vga line. HTH
