Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1479325
Manpage mentions rd.vconsole.keymap but dracut expects vconsole.keymap

Description of problem:
The description is vague but based on it this seems incorrect as it is referring to rd.vconsole.keymap and there is no link to see the details of the change:
If you have to input passwords for encrypted disk volumes, you might want to set the keyboard layout and specify a display font.
A typical german kernel command would contain:
rd.vconsole.font=latarcyrheb-sun16 rd.vconsole.keymap=de-latin1-nodeadkeys rd.locale.LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
Setting these options can override the setting stored on your system, if you use a modern init system, like systemd.
Ok, this whole bz was a mistake. We don't use this part of code in rhel.
