I'm not sure, but I think it is not supported.

What you are asking is "appending" a second file to the kernel.
AFAIK support Linux kernel only a single initial ram disk.

I suggest to solve the problem in the initrd, so that the first initrd
retrieves the the second "initrd".

I think "two stage initrd" is allready solved before.

If you find some solution, then please post it here
for having it in the mailinglists archive.
