Updated dracut packages that add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The dracut packages provide an event-driven initramfs generator infrastructure based around udev. The initramfs is loaded together with the kernel at boot time and initializes the system, so it can read and boot from the root partition.
The dracut packages have been updated to support the new kernel boot option, "rdinsmodpost=[module]", which allows a user to specify a kernel module to be loaded after all device drivers are loaded automatically.
Users of dracut are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
