haven't looked at the codebase since longer so taking the changelog
entries for granted.
* cmdline - ignores any of the boot passed arguments
even critical ones like root, rootfs or rootdelay
on the TODO of the webpage, unchanged status.
* missing debian arch support - for example s390
you still pretend to work everywhere
* UUID, Label - apparently only works for some fs
no status change, although this is even more grave
as grub switched to use UUID by default.
i guess this gets ignored in the same away as aboves.
the debian kernel team actively encourages users to use UUID,
in order to have stable boot devices. sooner or later d-i
should also switch to use UUID.
* missing firmware - several scsi drivers need firmware inside initramfs
no loader on initramfs nor any mechanism to add it
argh *documenting* your behaviour is not going to rock.
an initramfs is expected to load the driver without
users having to fiddle config files. there are several
scsi drivers that needs it. modinfo tells it.
modern linux drivers have separated firmware and we in debian
always asked for it so this needs to be supported out of the box.
* missing cryptsetup support see #336599
* no dmraid support
* no usplash support
* brutal hardcoding - breaks ony every new linux image
either due to /proc, /sys or /boot/config hardcoded parsing
see #443821 for the latest 2.6.23 variation
after *years* of complaining upstream finally lowered the
severity of the INPUT device warning. *ouf* thanks!!
this should help not breaking installs of linux images.
* dead upstream - 24 debian revisions
one release after 2 years
well from my side no cake, 2 points out of 9 got worked on.
the most grave being no firmware support for loading your root
