Description Adam Williamson 2014-02-11 02:28:57 UTC
I just installed Rawhide to my 'fedlet' - a Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet. The internal storage is SDHCI over ACPI on MMC (I think I've got that right).

dracut included mmc_block in the initramfs, but not sdhci_acpi , so it couldn't boot: the internal storage is not accessible from dracut environment. I edited /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/90kernel-modules/module-setup.sh and added 'sdhci_acpi' to this instmods stanza:

instmods yenta_socket scsi_dh_rdac scsi_dh_emc \

re-generated the initramfs, and the system can boot fine.

Will attach the sosreport.

Note: this is *not an ARM system*. It's an Intel Bay Trail tablet. Yup, you're going to start seeing Intel devices with very ARM-ish storage/hardware setups.

FYI I've proposed a general fix with patch for all SDHCI and MMC controllers in bug 1097301 and sent the patch upstream too

Comment 4 Thierry Vignaud 2014-07-29 13:52:46 UTC
Then Peter, shouldn't commit a0b2c69441f10659cb847cbcf6fa95efdd00289f be reversed?

Yep, I've got a patch that I'm going to send upstream once I've confirmed it. Slowly working through my list of dracut bits

Comment 6 Peter Robinson 2014-10-26 11:50:13 UTC
Sent appropriate patch upstream to deal with the revert so I'll close this now
