Name        : dracut
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 037
Release     : 11.git20140402.fc20
URL         : https://dracut.wiki.kernel.org/
Summary     : Initramfs generator using udev
Description :
dracut contains tools to create a bootable initramfs for 2.6 Linux kernels.
Unlike existing implementations, dracut does hard-code as little as possible
into the initramfs. dracut contains various modules which are driven by the
event-based udev. Having root on MD, DM, LVM2, LUKS is supported as well as
NFS, iSCSI, NBD, FCoE with the dracut-network package.

Update Information:

This update reverts a broken upstream change that causes RHBZ#1084766. Affected systems could fail to boot with newer kernels whose initramfs was generated with the affected dracut version. If you are affected by this bug, boot an older kernel which is unaffected, and re-generate the affected initramfs files - you can do this manually (see 'man dracut') or simply by removing and reinstalling the affected kernel packages.
