I too have been using it for months by packaging hooks to use dracut
instead of mkinitrd with my custom kernel builds.

The only issue I had early on was with raid, as explained in my post of
june 15th - the solution was to ensure that the initrd is built
with --mdadmconf. Since then it's been rock solid on several computers
includng 2 running raid 6.

Anyway - works like a champ.Thanks for taking this on Giancarlo.
