This is (one of the big reasons) why we only permit static linking with
explicit approval from FESCo.

I'm really very uncomfortable with the generic initrd not including
matching sources in the corresponding SRPM (whether that is kernel or
some dedicated "generic-dracut" package is immaterial). The answer of
"the sources are in the Fedora lookaside cache, somewhere, go track it
down yourself" isn't really sufficient for me.

Unfortunately, I can't think of a good way to package up a generic
initrd in a way that we can provide source properly. I'm open to
suggestions though.
