Well, use "lsinitrd /boot/<initrd>" to confirm that the driver is 
actually part of yours.  If so, I suspect you'll at least need to add 
the kernel args.  At a minimum, that'd require distributing a modified 
/etc/default/grub and running "grub2-mkconfig -o /etc/grub2-efi.cfg".  
It might not require any other changes...
