Description Jens Osterkamp 2007-10-29 08:23:24 EDT
Description of problem:
When generating an initrd for mkzimage the specified rootopts put into the init
script in the initrd as mount options for nfsroot.
But when the image is booted and the init script is executed, the mount options
are ignored and are always set to kernel defaults.

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

How reproducible:
Every time by building zImage with mkinitrd and mkzimage. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create initrd with e.g.
mkinitrd --with=tg3 --rootopts=tcp,nolock,rsize=4096,wsize=4096 --net-dev=eth0
--rootfs=nfs /boot/initrd-2.6.22-5.20070920bsc.img 2.6.22-5.20070920bsc
2. create zImage with
mkzimage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-5.20070920bsc no no
/boot/initrd-2.6.22-5.20070920bsc.img /usr/share/ppc64-utils/zImage.stub
3.boot the image and take a look at /proc/mounts.
Actual results:

rootfs is still mounted with udp even though tcp was specified.

Expected results:

rootfs should be mounted with tcp, rsize=4096, wsize=4096

Additional info:

I created a patch which fixes the problem for me. Will attach to this bug.

Hello Peter,
do you have any news on this bugzilla with regards to Fedora 8 or 9 ..?
Will it be fixed with an update for Fedora 8 ..? 
Or only with Fedora 9 ..?
Please advise.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Yes, looks very similar. AFAICT it is not yet fixed in Fedora.
