The Kconfig for at least x86_64's easy-kernel doesn't have the MMC drivers built-in, so it is not possible to boot an installation from an MMC-based rootfs without using a custom kernel or an initramfs.
This issue kind of touches at the heart of the fuzzy line we have between easy-kernel and using an initramfs now that we ship dracut. As far as I know there isn't a specific policy on what should be baked in and what shouldn't, just a vague idea of what's "common". I'm fine with closing this as WONTFIX, but it would be nice to establish a consistent policy (indeed, across all architectures too).
