Yes, you must do it in initramfs for that reason.

However the initramfs implementation is not yet ready.

I've reduced the OpenFirmware change, removing the .zd file resize: verb
support, leaving just the new utility command fs-resize.  There's no
change to fs-update, and no need to change olpc-os-builder.
