Ah, indeed.
Although it feels a bit ugly because the consistency between fstab and 
GRUB_CMDLINE_* will have to be verified manually forever then.

Hmm, can not find any dracut-specific mailing list to ask. Apparently 
there is none :(
Anyway, generally, why not pack a real fstab from the host into initrd 
then? Or at least one line ("/") from it? Something prohibits this?

Thank you,
