The one particular reason given by Russell Coker in that mail is:
] some systems do not support initrd's (EG the Sun/Cobalt Qube/RaQ hardware
] which has a Linux kernel in the BIOS which can read an Ext2/Ext3 file
] system and load a kernel - they never wrote code for loading an initrd).
One of the designs of initramfs, is that the filesystem is appended onto the
end of the kernel as a compressed cpio archive. So on a system with a
bootloader that does not support initrd (Cobalt), the initramfs can be
appended on the end of the kernel-image.
Do you know if Red Hat have a list of other reasons/issues somewhere; it
would be useful to be able to go through them and check off against each
item that we do actually have everything covered.
