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


   This update for dracut fixes the following issues:

   - 91zipl: Don't use contents of commented lines (osc#1119499)
   - emergency mode: bring shell and all vital information to all ttys
     specified as console devices (FATE#325386, bsc#1053248, bsc#937555)
   - Fix displaying text on emergency consoles (bsc#1124088)
   - Remove invalid "FONT_MAP=none" from vconsole.conf (osc#1013573)
   - Ensure mmc host modules get included properly (bsc#1119037)
   - Fix a missing space in example configs (bsc#1121251)
   - 95zfcp_rules/ remove rule existence check (bsc#1008352).
   - dracut-installkernel: Stop keeping old kernel files as .old (bsc#1112327)

     The .old kernel files are confusing grub2 which can't find a matching
   directory under /lib/modules. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the
   new modules are fully compatible with the old kernel. If anything goes
   wrong with a new self-compiled kernel, the user can always boot back to
   the distribution kernel, so the .old backup files are not needed in the
   first place. Get rid of them to simplify and speed up the whole process.
