Description han.holl 2006-11-13 13:25:44 UTC
Description of problem: 
--with(out)-usb undocumented and doesn't work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mkinird -f --without-usb outputfile $(uname -r)
2.gunzip <outputfile | cpio -ivumd
3.cat init and ls -l lib
Actual results:
usb modules are loaded

Expected results:
No usb modules

Additional info:
The reason is that --without-usb sets withusb=0.
Later on, the test is [ -n "$withusb" ].
Change to [ "$withusb" = "1" ]

Also without-usb doesn't show up in --help, nor on the man-page.
Man-page and --help output differ considerably.

Fixed in CVS.  Thanks.

Fine. Maybe this is an opportunity to rename --without-usb to
--omit-usb-modules to be more in sync with scsi, raid and lvm.
