__Everyone__ is already using an initramfs, therefore there are no
initramfs-less systems anymore (it may just be empty). Every single
person reading this thread that has not already done so needs to
immediately go read the relevant documentation located in
then and only then can a real discourse be had.
Why is an in-kernel initramfs so bad anyway? I am baffled. Its quite
nice to have a minimal recovery env in case mounting fails, etc, etc,
