Bug#417938: Acknowledgement (lvm2create_initrd missing pieces)

More things missing:


Further it doesn't copy my /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf over.

Finally, the decription says a requirement is that all modules needed for
booting must be compiled into the kernel... yet the script calls modprobe -
but it doesn't include modprobe in the initrd. So either it should include
it (and then the /lib/modules/`uname -r`) tree, or it shouldn't attempt to
use it.

As of now I'm finally able use the initrd to get RAID and LVM up and the
system booted. If I find anything else, I'll let you know.

"Never write it in C if you can do it in 'awk';
 Never do it in 'awk' if 'sed' can handle it;
 Never use 'sed' when 'tr' can do the job;
 Never invoke 'tr' when 'cat' is sufficient;
 Avoid using 'cat' whenever possible" -- Taylor's Laws of Programming
