[Bug 32123] Re: initramfs not generated correctly on dist-upgrade

Yea, live CD does not boot (80/20 rule)!  I do have the installed system
working by booting recovery [check /etc/fstab and mtab].

Problem occurs on newer combined DVD/Hard drive "SATA controls" that
can't determine what HDMA? speed [most times]. [not sure about technical
details but this is the condition]

Reported elsewhere [dogpile search] to only happen on dual CPU
processors (AKA Intel 2180). I suspect error occurs when different CPU
handles 'setup' requests separately. initramfs 'looping' persists as
speed is never negotiated [133, then 66, finally 33]. Slowing down the
DVD drive on bootup (audio CD in drive) helps. Go figure.

Looks like there is an 'initramfs' update out there today, I'll put it
on.

Does anyone have a handle on this? How can I help resolve? Is there some
maintenance group I can communicate with?
