You are correct as to current state of play. It _used_ to be generated
during the OOB run. Now it is build during the kernel build.

This makes things rather tricky -- currently to get a kernel driver
param such as this one you need to install it _on the machine where
you build your kernel rpm_. This is at best awkward -- the kernel
build environment better be a chroot :-/

So currently Ajay will need to rebuild the kernel rpm in a chroot
where he has installed that libertas.conf he desires. Luckily, we don'
t mess with this too much.

At some point however, I hope that hacking in the initrd gets a bit
more practical.
