The dracut documentation is all you need. It's remarkably simple. I
would not suggest trying to get it working on F9.

As for the patches, I think they need more discussion (or at least eyes).

I would suggest creating a wiki page for each major change describing
the motivation and implementation, and then creating a thread for each
one with the appropriate people on CC.

I'm particularly uneasy about the change that ignores OFW's judgement
on whether a lease is valid.  I think we need input from all of the
relevant experts on that one.

The date stuff is less scary but I do have some questions/concerns,
and I think we should also push a wiki page under peoples noses so
that they at least read about the changes we're making.
