They should land on the dracut package itself sometime this week, or start of the next week. I might commit
them to svn before that, so probably keep an eye on the dracut package git repository, but I make no promises.

There will probably be some default dracut configuration as well. And each kernel might end up having two dracut.d
configuration files, one for each image (regular and fallback), created from a preset, in a similar way mkinitcpio
does it now.
