Bug#417643: add subsection related to rootdelay bootparam
4.6.5 Boot timing issues
On some hardware setups (usb, lilo bootloader, md root..) the device
creation can happen to late for the boot scripts to act on. As quick
workaround issue the bootparam "rootdelay=9".
The specific timeout can be adjusted to the specific hardware. The
usual diagnosis is a boot with rescue shell and all expected hardware
devices were already created in between.
thanks for checking aboves sentences for correctness and adding
that to release notes.
