Description Dave Airlie 2008-08-28 20:36:04 EDT
Description of problem:

mkinitrd still uses /proc/usb/ for stabilising, however I don't get the mount line in my initrd at all despite have a USB root disk. If I stick sleep 15 manually instead of the stabiliser then it boots fine.

So not sure if /proc/usb is gone away or why the mount line isn't getting emitted.

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

Patch that supports built-in usb .hci[_-]hcd.ko

The problem came up because ohci-hcd et al are now built into the kernel, rather than modules.  This broke the heuristics to mount /proc/bus/usb right after loading those modules.  The attached patch fixed this problem for me.

This should already be fixed by http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=mkinitrd;a=commitdiff;h=0e3a5937c49ecada201d99909cf6fa06e0163596, in 6.0.63-1.

Please reopen if it's not.
