There are some outstanding questions regarding the usefullnes of this code, and
the resolution we should take with it (removal vs. fixing to work properly), 
The code exists in this state in mkinitrd as well.  I've found where the modules
usually handled by finddmmods are now being picked up, and am discussing with
pjones the best way to handle this particular piece of code.
Comment 2 Neil Horman 2006-11-01 13:27:55 EST
fixed in -116.el5
Comment 3 Akira Imamura 2006-11-01 14:30:04 EST
I reviewed the latest script of mkdumprd, but I don't know how you
fixed it. What has changed in it?
Comment 4 Neil Horman 2006-11-01 14:37:01 EST
sorry, that should have read -117.el5
Comment 5 Jay Turner 2007-02-13 12:18:00 EST
