I have never used dracut, but it has modules similar to mkinitcpio
hooks. I guess the modules contain more automagic so you don't have to
manually enable/disable them. If you want, you can limit the modules to
include, though. If functionality is missing you will need to write a
dracut module instead of a mkinitcpio hook.
