I have found the same thing - that umount /initrd seems to free the memory and that freeramdisk (with the patch to rd.c) does not appear to do anything.
I have not found any more correspondance about this topic and was wondering if this behaviour was ok. Specifically I would like to know if I need to apply the rd.c patch and then to run freeramdisk, or if I can just leave this out.
