File 0035-Introduce-force-drivers-parameter-and-force_drivers-.patch of Package dracut.892

From 35997a262493d31af8cd06a93612cf341df3f0cb Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH] Introduce --force-drivers parameter and force_drivers=+
 config option

Which will not only add listed drivers, but also enforce that they are tried
 to be loaded at early boot time.

This is needed if drivers which are not autoloaded (e.g. loop and a lot others)
shall get loaded via initramfs.
