Default Bug#488963: please provide break at the top of mountroot

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92b
Severity: wishlist

Please provide a maybe_break hook right at the top of mountroot,
after running the ${BOOT}-top scripts and before mounting root.

I would suggest to rename the hooks as follows and call the new hook
mount.

top -> init
mount -> top
<new> -> mount

not sure if i'd like to play a renaming game,
adding a maybe_break mountroot seems easier and makes sense.

ok with you?

Why not? It's for debugging purposes and thus not critical.
