mkdumprd: Use --hostonly and --add <module> while calling dracut
Last modified: 2013-02-25 03:53:09 EST
Description of problem:
Currently kdump is using -m kdumpbase. Harald mentioned generally -m means that dracut should include modules only specified by -m and nothing else. He recommended that we use --add instead. I think it makes sense that we don't want
to know about all the modules and let dracut decide which modules to include.
It also has a flip side that dracut might include too many modules, I think we will have to do more research and debugging and sort out these issues slowly.
Also start using --hostonly. I noticed that in my virtual machine, size of
generated initramfs comes down if I am using --add and --hostonly.
