6 What's wrong with:
7 * having an "early mounts" list file
8 * having an "early modules" list file
9 * init system in early boot (e.g., OpenRC in loading "early
10 modules" and mounting "early mounts" from /etc/fstab
12 This will solve the issue with most non-complex (i.e., no raid or
13 encryption) initramfs-less setups, without requiring that users
14 migrate to initramfs (e.g., after dealing with genkernel-generated
15 scripts for a long time, I wouldn't touch it with a pointed stick
16 anymore). The relevant files can be also generated automatically
17 during an upgrade (empty "early modules" and empty or /usr-only "early
18 mounts", depending on /etc/fstab contents).
