Default Bug#463607: initramfs-tools: hook-functions have hardcoded list of net drivers, omiting many popular chips

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.85h
Severity: normal

/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions in function auto_add_modules
we have list of net drivers. I suppose that list is used instand of copying
files from drivers/net/ directory to save space, but many drivers (especially
from newer kernel 2.6.22) are omited (i.e. sky2, atl1). For people with
this net adapters MODULES=netboot, or usage of live-initramfs for netboot,,
or FAI installation via PXE will not work (on etch and lenny).

Please update list of drivers, and add proper comment to
default initramfs.conf, becaouse currently they implictly indicate that
all network modules are added:

-# netboot - Add the base modules, network modules, but skip block devices.
+# netboot - Add the base modules, some network modules, but skip block devices.
