Oh, I must have overlooked that mail, sorry.

Yes, I agree this should not happen.  If we ever add initramfs-tools
support to brltty (I'd like to try when 3.8 gets released), /etc/brltty.conf
should be copied into the initramfs instead of using the kernel parameter hack
for configuration.  Besides, having brltty= in menu.lst is definitely
misleading and confuses users.  Even more problematic, the setting doesn't
have any effect after installation, so changing it will not work as

Do you know where we need to patch to get this kopt arg filtered?
