I used `cpio -ovF <file>` and `cpio -ov -H crc -F <file>` (I found the
latter on http://sial.org/howto/linux/initrd/). However I could not
find any "officially looking" information about how the
initrd.img/modules.cgz is created.

yes, with `gzip -9`.

OK, I could wait this long (better: short) :-)
