   An update that has 9 recommended fixes can now be installed.


   This update for dracut provides the following fixes:

   - Ensure responds properly to hostonly_cmdline option.
   - Fix system shutdown when in initrd rescue mode. (bsc#1048698)
   - Do not scan drivers for their reverse dependency as this causes too many
     extra modules to be included into the initrd. (bsc#1037344)
   - Make sure dracut looks for modules.builtin in the correct path when used
     with the --kmoddir
     option. (bsc#1048606)
   - Ensure the ssh-client is usable by including the NSS plugin libraries
     configured in nsswitch.conf. (bsc#1021846)
   - Sync initramfs after creation to ensure it is properly written to disk
     when using fadump and invoking crash right after service start.
   - Don't detect crc32.ko as built-in, as in some kernel configurations it
     may also appear as a module. (bsc#1054538)
   - Enable systemd-based core dumps for initrd. (bsc#1054809)
   - Add missing coreutils dependency for initrd macros. (bsc#1055492)
