mkinitrd doesn't handle fstabs with vfstype of auto correctly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:59 EDT
If the root filesystem is of type auto, then mkinitrd makes a image that
can't mount root. auto can be used to automatically handle ext2 vs ext3
with recent e2fsprogs and util-linux.
Adding this is tricky, as we don't have normal mount/e2fsprogs available in the
initrd image. I'll reconsider this if a lot of people ask for it, but the only
real reason for it seems to be to support 2.2 and 2.4 kernels on the same
machine, which most people don't need.
