Well, as you pointed out in later emails, the initramfs generation
will pick it up from there. I'd forgotten about that -- sorry.

So what you want to do is get libertas.conf into some package
(olpc-utils) or install it from an OOB module -- the xo1 module is a
good candidate.

In fact I'm liking the OOB module option. I think we would accept a
patch to OOB's xo1 module, where based on an option it creates this
file. Just have to make sure it's created before dracut is used to
generate the initramfs.

A bit late, but we may be able to land it for 12.1.0 (or later for 12.2.0).
