Description f5200556 2018-01-20 20:18:51 UTC
On the new 17.1 profile sys-fs/zfs-9999 installs it's dracut module to "/usr/lib64/dracut/modules.d/" while dracut looks for modules under "/usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/"

    sys-fs/zfs: fix dracut module path
    zfs should use /usr/lib/dracut to install dracut modules.
    dracut ebuild defines:
            local dracutlibdir="usr/lib/dracut"
    with /usr/lib64 path on SYMLINK_LIB=no systems
    dracut fails to pick up zfs modules
    and generates an unbootable initramfs
