Description of problem:
mkinitrd does not copy udev *.rules to the initrd, so if the finding the
rootfs relies on udev rules, booting cannot proceed.
I encountered this while making a bootable cdrom from fedora rpms, but there
may be more scenarios. I don't think it can happen on a "normal" installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: initrd does not contain /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules; if the rootfs is
on /dev/cdrom (or usb drive, or ...), the root filesystem cannot be mounted.
Expected Results: initrd contains /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules
initrd doesn't use udev, and probably won't do so in the future.
