      parse_numeric: Do not attempt to canonicalise root device name · eff18063
      Ben Hutchings authored
      LILO allows specifying an md-RAID device as root, e.g. root=/dev/md0,
      but as usual translates them into device numbers, e.g. root=900.
      parsen_numeric translates device numbers back into e.g. /dev/block/9:0
      but then tries to canonicalise them using readlink -f.  This works OK
      for simple disk devices whose drivers will have initialised by the
      point it runs, but not for stacked disk devices which will be created
      We could move parse_numeric later, but I think it's preferable to
      handle this weird special case before running external scripts that
      use $ROOT.

      local: Use max(30, rootdelay) as timeout for block device to appear · 84023324
      Ben Hutchings authored
      The rootdelay kernel parameter is specified as a fixed delay before
      attempting to mount the root filesystem, not a timeout.  In the
      initramfs it is processed by udev's init-top script.  This is being
      used to workaround bug #678696, but as most users will set the
      shortest value that seems to work, it is fragile.  Using the same
      value as a timeout makes our fix for #678696 fragile too.
      We shouldn't really use $ROOTDELAY here at all, but as some users may
      have a good reason for wanting a longer timeout and may depend on the
      current behaviour, make our current default timeout of 30 seconds a

      local: Invoke local-block scripts from the loop in local_device_setup · d4e56010
      Ben Hutchings authored
      Currently we invoke the local-top script once (and possibly
      local-block once for /usr) and then poll for block devices to appear
      if that wasn't sufficient.  This works for synchronously discovered
      devices, devices stacked on top of them (using lvm2/mdadm/cryptsetup)
      and asynchronously discovered devices like USB storage.  It doesn't
      work for devices stacked on top of USB unless they are set up entirely
      via udev hooks.
      We need to invoke local-block again before each time we poll.
      As the local-block scripts might not be that quick and we don't
      have a good way to include their run-time in the timeout check,
      wait 1 second rather than 0.1 second between polls.

      checkfs: Correct error messages and emergency shell in case of failure · e5526cda
      Ben Hutchings authored
      The current error messages and some code are taken from initscripts,
      which will fsck an already-mounted root filesystem and then must
      reboot if it is modified.  Here we have not mounted the filesystem and
      can continue if the fsck was successful, or retry after running an
      emergency shell.
      The emergency shell also doesn't work (sulogin crashes); we must use
      the panic function for this instead.
      log_warning_msg does not print to the console if the 'quiet' parameter
      was used, so is not suitable for warning messages that must appear
      unconditionally.  Pass a terse explanatory message to the panic

      checkfs: Continue unless fsck reports uncorrectable errors · 1780a669
      Ben Hutchings authored
      The current checking of the fsck exit code is extremely fragile.  We
      should never see the reboot flag (2) set as that is only used when
      checking a mounted root filesystem, so don't bother checking for it.
      So we should only need to check whether the uncorrectable error flag
      (4) is set, and should continue otherwise.
      This mitigates bug #766448.
      Closes: #765614
