The Arch testing/systemd package recently added support for systemd in initramfs. This obsoletes the base, usr, udev and timestamp hooks.
So, what about the rest? 0) autodetect, block, filesystems, fsck, keyboard and modconf work exactly as before. 1) mdadm: I see no hope for this hook working on systemd, however the mdadm_udev hook works out of the box. 2) lvm2: This is much simpler now. I created the sd-lvm2 hook, find it here: https://paste.xinu.at/3vezU/ - this works great, although it could be simplified a bit if one uses add_systemd_unit and add_udev_rule. 3) encrypt: I created the sd-encrypt hook, you can find it here: https://paste.xinu.at/8xUYPI/. This changes the command line syntax, the new syntax can be found in the manpage for systemd-cryptsetup-generator. However, the syntax is less powerful than before - for that reason, I added /etc/crypttab.initrd as /etc/crypttab to the initrd, which should support almost everything. There were some problems with adding the same crypttab for initrd and the main system, but that may be my stupiditiy - I hope the separate crypttab is something we can get rid of. 4) shutdown: I removed this from initramfs entirely - I now generate the shutdown ramfs on the fly during shutdown instead of generating one in the initrd. I'll post something when I polished it more. 5) consolefont/keymap: I tried by putting systemd-vconsole-setup to initramfs. Since keymaps are now loaded by loadkeys instead of busybox's setkmap, this had a few problems and I couldn't get it to work yet.
