Description Warren Togami 2008-03-05 22:18:04 EST
mkinitrd --withavail==networking
This option pulls in all networking drivers, and loads the driver during initrd
if a matching device exists.  Unfortunately this sometimes can cause failures
when multiple drivers support the same network card.  For example, 8139too and
8139cp support an overlapping set of network cards.  nash loadDrivers loads
8139too before 8139cp, while the latter is what the user needs.

Attached is the --without option for mkinitrd.  Syntax Example:
--withavail==networking --without="8139too ipw2200"

Slightly better version of patch, faster in the common case where none are

I don't feel very strongly either way and this does match the rest of the stuff
that we have.  So committed
