Bug#588452: dependencies using softdep option
when using something like the following in /etc/modprobe.d/dasd.conf:
options dasd_mod dasd=0.0.0200(diag),0.0.0201,0.0.0202-0.0.0203(diag)
softdep dasd_eckd_mod pre: dasd_diag_mod
softdep dasd_fba_mod pre: dasd_diag_mod
currently there doesn't exist a possibility to display such softdeps
using modprobe [--show-depends] as the interface.
As we - the initramfs-tools maintainers - would like to get a
listing of such softdeps on request I'm asking for your input
regarding this issue.
The full details of the wishlist-/bugreport are available at
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=588452 - we'd
highly appreciate any input and feedback.
thanks && regards,
