Instead of a plain dm snapshot a dm thin snapshot is used. The advantage of the thin snapshot is, that the TRIM command is recognized, which means that at runtime, only the occupied blocks will be claimed from memory, and freed blocks will really be freed in ram. - dmsquash: Add squashfs support to rd.live.fsimg Previously rd.live.fsimg only supported filesystems residing in (compressed) archives. Now rd.live.fsimg can also be used when a squashfs image is used. This is achieved by extracting the rootfs image from the squashfs and then continue with the default routines for rd.live.fsimg. - lvm: add support for LVM system id - split up the systemd dracut module Basic systemd functionality is in 00systemd now. Switching root and the initrd.target is in 00systemd-initrd. Dracut additions to the systemd initrd are in 98dracut-systemd. - support for creating a UEFI boot executable via argument "--uefi" With an EFI stub, the kernel, the initramfs and a kernel cmdline can be glued together to a single UEFI executable, which can be booted by a UEFI BIOS. - network: split out kernel-network-modules, now in 90kernel-network-modules - support for ethernet point-to-point connections configured via DHCP - kernel-modules: install all HID drivers - dracut.pc pkg-config file - mount /dev, /dev/shm and /run noexec -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe initramfs" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
