   An update that has 7 recommended fixes can now be installed.


   This update for dracut provides the following fixes:

   - Fix the task limit when running the emergency shell. This fixes a
     problem that was causing xfs_repair to crash when trying to repair a
     damaged XFS filesystem. (bsc#1019938)
   - Scan for files in /etc/multipath/conf.d when setting up a multipath
     configuration. (bsc#1048551)
   - Support AMD CPU families 0x16 and 0x17 (bsc#1072424)
   - Make ip=dhcp work. Previously, a network interface specifier was
     required. The new behaviour matches documented behaviour.
   - Remove 00systemd-bootchart, which is gone from systemd for some time
   - support predictable interface names (boo#960669)
   - Include crc32c Intel module when using btrfs (bsc#1011554)
   - Switch back to fipvlan for bnx2fc (bsc#1052840)
   - 95fcoe: Allow bnc2x driver more time to complete DCB negotiation
