Going into testing in a few minutes:

mkinitcpio changes:
- Finally fix a bug where required HID modules were missing
- Add a new COMPRESSION option that accepts gzip, lzma and bzip2 
parameters (gzip is the default, the others are only supported on 2.6.30 
and later)
- Add a new poll_device function that waits for a block device to 
appear. This is used in the init function and the resume hook, with 
rootdelay as a maximum timeout (default to 10 seconds)
- Remove the unmaintained and untested modload hook
- Remove the runtime filesystems hook
- Rework the code that checks whether a root device has been found, 
don't reboot when exiting the emergency shell, but try to continue.
- Due to the new poll_device behaviour, the usb and fw runtime hooks are 
no longer required, remove them
- Parse arguments to init properly, using the "$@" parameter from the 
commandline the kernel generated - also needs the new fix in the latest 
kinit from testing (this allows us to use init=/bin/sh again)
- Adjust for the latest filesystem/module-init-tools changes
- Fix an autodetection bug that would sometimes omit some filesystems

cryptsetup changes:
- Use poll_device when waiting for the encrypted device and the 
(optional) key container device (default to rootdelay), added 
- Add a warning if the deprecated root= syntax is used on the commandline
