I thought we needed rootwait for azure

Hm, good point. So far this change is only done on the BBB which is not available in azure (right?). On generic amd64 we do not set rootwait AFAICS.

Oliver Grawert (ogra) wrote :

yeah, the kernel cmdline is pretty arch specific ... though it would make the azure image fail if there was a broken initrd ... why do we need rootwait (vs just relying on wait--for-root in the initrd mount scripts) on azure, thats kind of redundant ?
