nlplug-findfs not found in initird
for some reason I ended up with plenty of initrds that didn’t have the
tool inside, meaning root was not mountable.
At the same time, and I think it’s related / has a common cause, there was also no working keyboard input.
This occured on edge
This occured on 3.3
This does not occur on 3.2
I tried rebuilding using update-extlinux and apk fix mkinitfs, I also
/sbin/nlplug in the OS has been around during that whole time, copying this into the initrd did not work since it’s not static.
I can provide broken initrds for review, but this issue has sucked up my debugging time for the next month.
For now I’ve gone back to 3.2, anything else has turned out to be
unusable due to this issue.
If someone tries to debug this: please keep an eye out for the no input issue since that is extra weird…

main/mkinitfs: make sure nlplug-findfs are included in initramfs If user had a modified /etc/mkinitfs/features.d/base.files we may not get the needed nlplug-findfs. Use post-* script to verify it is actually there. fixes #4873
