how can I add udev into initrd?
 
Is there a way to add udev into initrd, or some way to populate the /dev/disk/by-uuid/ directory from initrd? It's the last thing (hopefully) I need to have a portable HD installation of Slackware.

I don't know about the initrd method but you don't need initrd. You could just load and run the actual kernel. In which case you could put the UUID into /etc/fstab. Here is a quote from the manual page for fstab.
Quote:

Instead of giving the device explicitly, one may indicate the (ext2 or
xfs) filesystem that is to be mounted by its UUID or volume label (cf.
e2label(8) or xfs_admin(8)), writing LABEL=<label> or UUID=<uuid>,
e.g., ‘LABEL=Boot' or ‘UUID=3e6be9de-8139-11d1-9106-a43f08d823a6'.
This will make the system more robust: adding or removing a SCSI disk
changes the disk device name but not the filesystem volume label.
