  * Too optimistic in thinking that the DRM driver will always be loaded
    in time for scripts/init-top/framebuffer to load; some users find that
    vesafb gets loaded first anyway, scrambling their console state in the
    initramfs.  Add a one-second sleep before checking if we should fall back
    to vesafb, which seems to be long enough to work around this.

    the running system. (LP: #807306)
  * hooks/busybox: Fix symlinking of /bin/sh to busybox, to work with current
    copy_exec() function.

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Use busybox-initramfs for Depends.
    - Mount /dev with the default tmpfs size rather than sourcing udev.conf.
    - Set takeover=1 in update-initramfs.
    - Allow the mounting of a root filesystem as a loop device on top of a
      host filesystem, used for Wubi installs.
    - Add vfat support to the initramfs.
    - Add 2>&1 to the run-init line.
    - Add mountroot failure support, to allow meaningful messages when no
      root device can be found.
    - Panic if either the root device doesn't exist, or blkid cannot
      identify it.  Allows for mountroot failure hooks for md devices to be
      displayed.
    - Ignore blacklist for forced vga= usage.
    - Loop for 5 seconds waiting for $suspend to show up, adjustable with
      the resumedelay= command-line arg.
    - Allow for alternative PREREQS to be specified using | as the
      separator.
    - Support loading compcache from the initramfs.
    - Remove klibc utilities if busybox is in use.
    - Revert "framebuffer: Let udev create fb devices."  udev isn't started
      at this point and therefore can't create framebuffer devices.
    - Create /dev/mem and /dev/zero if video=uvesafb.
    - Add hid_* modules, since some keyboards will not be usable at the
      initramfs/busybox prompt without them.
    - Replace all instances of vol_id with blkid, and depend on util-linux.
    - Use gzip from busybox instead of klibc.  Depend on busybox-initramfs
      (>= 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu5) to ensure that we have it.
    - Remove bnx2 from the initramfs; it needs firmware, and at this stage
      we only support network modules that don't need firmware loading.
    - Don't display "Loading, please wait..." message when 'quiet' is in
      /proc/cmdline.
    - Allow scripts and hooks to specify OPTION=VAR, and unless VAR is set
      to something other than "n", the script will not be included.
    - Restore the framebuffer hook and script, copying KMS and other
      framebuffer drivers into the initramfs, but make them optional; you
      need to set FRAMEBUFFER=y for these to be included.
    - Depend on a sufficient version of udev to load fbcon.
    - Don't load keymaps unless we're loading a framebuffer; but set the
      keymap before giving a root shell.
    - Add new initramfs-tools-bin package containing a binary that uses
      libudev to wait for udev to create the udev device, or wait for udev
      to finish processing if we catch it in the act, and returns the
      filesystem type as already probed by udev.  Use it while mounting
      local root filesystems and while resuming.
    - Add hwaddr= alias for BOOTIF= for compatibility.
    - Allow specifying multiple break points using a comma delimiter.
    - Automatically blacklist vga16fb when vga= or video= specified on
      kernel command-line.
    - Call 'plymouth message' before resuming, to notify the user of the
      reason for the delay if the plymouth theme supports it.
    - Add a new 'fixrtc' script that tries to set the system clock forward
      based on the last mount time of the root disk; without this kludge,
      systems without a working RTC will end up in a perpetual reboot loop.
    - Drop hooks/keymap and associated code; console-setup takes care of
      this in Ubuntu.
    - Incorporate rzscontrol from compcache so that we can control current
      ramzswap devices.
    - Call 'plymouth hide-splash' before running failure hooks.
    - Make /etc/mtab a symlink to /proc/mounts on startup, since e.g.
      current ntfs-3g doesn't work otherwise.
    - Ignore errors from iscan and iscan-data hooks.
    - Set hostname at boot, for the benefit of mdadm autoassembly.
    - If root= is numeric, set ROOT to /dev/block/N:N rather than /dev/root.
    - Consolidate framebuffer calls to 'udevadm settle'.

    again to involve writing to sysfs files, which won't require any special

    - Conflict with older versions of usplash.
    - Don't load keymaps unless we're loading a framebuffer; but set the
      keymap before giving a root shell.
    - Add new initramfs-tools-bin package containing a binary that uses
      libudev to wait for udev to create the udev device, or wait for udev
      to finish processing if we catch it in the act, and returns the
      filesystem type as already probed by udev.  Use it while mounting
      local root filesystems and while resuming.
    - Add hwaddr= alias for BOOTIF= for compatibility.
    - Allow specifying multiple break points using a comma delimiter.
    - Automatically blacklist vga16fb when vga= or video= specified on
      kernel command-line.
    - Call 'plymouth message' before resuming, to notify the user of the
      reason for the delay if the plymouth theme supports it.
    - Add a new 'fixrtc' script that tries to set the system clock forward
      based on the last mount time of the root disk; without this kludge,
      systems without a working RTC will end up in a perpetual reboot loop.
    - Drop hooks/keymap and associated code; console-setup takes care of
      this in Ubuntu.
  * Add .conf extension to modprobe blacklist configuration file in the
    vga=*|video=* case (it had already been added in other cases, thanks to
    an upstream merge).

  * Only make the extra commands conditional on dh_listpackages, not the
    override_dh_install target as a whole, as dh gets confused and avoids
    calling dh_install at all when we're only building binary-arch.

initramfs-tools (0.96.1ubuntu1) maverick; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian:
    - Fixes redboot partition handling (LP: #319730).
    - Don't hardcode incorrect elilo path (LP: #396000).
    Remaining changes:
    - Use busybox-initramfs for Depends, and set BUSYBOXDIR to match.
    - Mount /dev with the default tmpfs size rather than sourcing udev.conf.
    - Set takeover=1 in update-initramfs.
    - Allow the mounting of a root filesystem as a loop device on top of a
      host filesystem, used for Wubi installs.
    - Add vfat support to the initramfs.
    - Reduce timeout to 30 seconds; corner cases (giant disk arrays,
      clusters) will need to provide their own rootdelay= boot arg.
    - Add 2>&1 to the run-init line.
    - Add mountroot failure support, to allow meaningful messages when no
      root device can be found.
    - Panic if either the root device doesn't exist, or blkid cannot
      identify it.  Allows for mountroot failure hooks for md devices to be
      displayed.
    - Ignore blacklist for forced vga= usage.
    - Loop for 5 seconds waiting for $suspend to show up, adjustable with
      the resumedelay= command-line arg.
    - Allow for alternative PREREQS to be specified using | as the
      separator.
    - Support loading compcache from the initramfs.
    - Remove klibc utilities if busybox is in use.
    - Change to tty1 on failure.
    - Revert "framebuffer: Let udev create fb devices."  udev isn't started
      at this point and therefore can't create framebuffer devices.
    - Create /dev/mem and /dev/zero if video=uvesafb.
    - Make debug option write debug output to
      /dev/.initramfs/initramfs.debug rather than /tmp/initramfs.debug, so
      that it can be retrieved after boot.
    - Add hid_* modules, since some keyboards will not be usable at the
      initramfs/busybox prompt without them.
    - Replace all instances of vol_id with blkid, and depend on util-linux.
    - Use gzip from busybox instead of klibc.  Depend on busybox-initramfs
      (>= 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu5) to ensure that we have it.
    - Remove bnx2 from the initramfs; it needs firmware, and at this stage
      we only support network modules that don't need firmware loading.
    - update-initramfs: check whether kernel-img.conf exists and
      postinst_hook is set before calling flash-kernel.
    - Don't display "Loading, please wait..." message when 'quiet' is in
      /proc/cmdline.
    - Allow scripts and hooks to specify OPTION=VAR, and unless VAR is set
      to something other than "n", the script will not be included.
    - Restore the framebuffer hook and script, copying KMS and other
      framebuffer drivers into the initramfs, but make them optional; you
      need to set FRAMEBUFFER=y for these to be included.
    - Silence /bin/resume output when trying to resume.
    - Depend on a sufficient version of udev to load fbcon.
    - Conflict with older versions of usplash.
    - Don't load keymaps unless we're loading a framebuffer; but set the
      keymap before giving a root shell.
    - Add new initramfs-tools-bin package containing a binary that uses
      libudev to wait for udev to create the udev device, or wait for udev
      to finish processing if we catch it in the act, and returns the
      filesystem type as already probed by udev.  Use it while mounting
      local root filesystems and while resuming.
    - Add hwaddr= alias for BOOTIF= for compatibility.
    - Allow specifying multiple break points using a comma delimiter.
    - Automatically blacklist vga16fb when vga= or video= specified on
      kernel command-line.
    - Call 'plymouth message' before resuming, to notify the user of the
      reason for the delay if the plymouth theme supports it.
    - Change to ${DESTDIR} before running find to filter out looping or
      broken symlinks, to avoid tickling a find bug.
    - Add a new 'fixrtc' script that tries to set the system clock forward
      based on the last mount time of the root disk; without this kludge,
      systems without a working RTC will end up in a perpetual reboot loop.
  * Drop artificial dependency on libc 2.11, which worked around a libapt
    bug on upgrade to lucid.
  * Drop lpia support.
  * Drop hooks/keymap and associated code again; console-setup takes care of
    this in Ubuntu.
  * Make /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/panic/keymap executable.
  * Make hooks/busybox declare hooks/klibc as a prerequisite, so that the
    former can remove symlinks installed by the latter.
  * Make the dependency on initramfs-tools-bin binNMU-safe.
