[bug#55231] [PATCH v1] initrd: Allow extra search paths with ‘initrd-extra-module-paths’
Thu, 02 Jun 2022 21:23:56 +0000
My $0.02 on 'initrd-extra-module-paths' vs 'kernel-loadable-modules': if the
initrd code is smart enough to not include the entire packages and only
includes the requested modules from the packages (which I think is already true
based on behavior observed some time ago), then not having to duplicate the
list would be preferable.
I found this issue in the tracker after being surprised that the initrd builder
ignored 'kernel-loadable-modules' with 'initrd-modules' only working for
modules that are included in the primary linux kernel package. That surprise
over the incompatibility between 'initrd-modules' and 'kernel-loadable-modules'
is also why I've been relatively vocal about the patch. ;)
