Description David Woodhouse 2007-03-29 22:58:10 EDT
mkinitrd uses dmsetup if it's present, but doesn't require it. If dmsetup is
absent, mkinitrd silently spits out an initrd which isn't going to work.

Although there's an argument to be made for _not_ requiring device-mapper stuff,
on the basis that some people don't need it, in practice nash has a requirement
for at least the _libraries_ anyway so we might as well just pull in the tools too.

current mkinitrd Requires device-mapper, which contains mdadm.
