You may have to use a newer kernel than what is in 14.2. I was looking through other threads with a similar problem, and came across one where slackware-current would boot, but slackware 14.2 wouldn't.
that should have been
Code:
mkinitrd -c -k 4.4.14 -f ext4 -w 15 -r /dev/mmcblk0p2 -m usb-storage:xhci-hcd:mmc_core:sdhci:sdhci-pci:xhci-pci:ohci-pci:ehci-pci:uhci-hcd:ehci-hcd:hid:usbhid:i2c-hid:hid_generic:hid-cherry:hid-logitech:hid-logitech-dj:hid-logitech-hidpp:hid-lenovo:hid-microsoft:hid_multitouch:jbd2:mbcache:ext4:cqhci:uas:mmc_block -u -o /boot/initrd.gz

For the cqhci driver you will need the 4.19 kernel or newer.

Thank you so much for your help. This mkinitrd gives me a login shell!!

Correction: you got it working, I was an interested bystander.
One last question: the modules you were adding to mkinitrd-generator, where are they contained in the system?

They are in /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel are added to the initrd.gz to allow the kernel to preload them before attempting to access the drive for the root filesystem.

Thank you, and can this be taken as a generalization, that kernel panic always means "unable to proceed" with whatever it started doing immediately before the panic?
