Dracut is masked on ~amd64. Bugs me, as I'd rather use something like
that than genkernel (I very much like building my own kernels; it
helps me keep things lean, and keeps me familiar with the capabilities
of current and future systems). But now I have to find time to learn
how to use Genkernel.
If we're going to be shoved into tight space like this, I'd be nice if
the "you can just use $x" tools work on stable. I've got three
previously-working systems at home I can't risk rebooting right now
because of this udev+/usr nonsense. I almost invariably put /usr and
/home on top of LVM, RAID or both.
