Source for dracut-initqueue in the initramfs

Description of problem:
There is a syntax error reported in line 72 of dracut-initqueue (might be a missing "then" a few lines earlier) and the boot fails. The failure may or may not be related to the reported syntax error.

Comment 4 Bruno Wolff III 2013-08-09 15:00:47 EDT
I tried adding the missing "then". I didn't notice the syntax error notice after that, but it didn't seem to have any other affect on the failure.

I tested this with dracut-031-24.git20130809.fc20.i686 and am still seeing the problem.
Comment 6 Bruno Wolff III 2013-08-09 21:12:19 EDT
I tested downgrading to dracut-030-2.fc20.i686 and rebuilding the initramfs image with the latest kernel and the system successfully boots with that initramfs image.
Comment 7 Bruno Wolff III 2013-08-13 00:55:00 EDT
This appears to be fixed for initramfs images built with dracut-031-29.git20130812.fc20.i686.
