Description Eric Sandeen 2003-09-16 13:20:43 EDT
Description of problem:
/sbin/mkinitrd does not make proper initrds for the LSI "mptscsih" driver

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Also checked in Rawhide

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "alias scsi_hostadapter mptscsih" to modules.conf
2. Make an initrd with -v
3. notice that mptscsih is added, but mptbase is not
4. notice that in modules.dep, mptbase is required by mptscsih:

/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.7.sgi1smp/kernel/drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.o \

5. reboot box with this initrd
Actual results:
mptscsih driver is not loaded from initrd due to missing dependencies

Expected results:
mptscsih properly loaded

Additional info:
The following patch also removes requirements on xfs modules that have not 
existed for well over a year.
