The initramfs has
(basically) one purpose in life -- getting the rootfs mounted so that
we can transition to the real rootfs. This is all driven off of
device availability. Therefore, instead of scripts hard-coded to do
various things, we depend on udev to create device nodes for us and
then when we have the rootfs's device node, we mount and carry on.
Having the root on MD, LVM2, LUKS is supported as well as NFS, iSCSI,
NBD and FCOE with dracut-network.
