dracut speed and kernel version



This is my first time I was forced to "hand use" dracut, because initramfs build by kernel install does not work (due to kexec-tool bug).

But I was surprised by few thinks:

1. dracut accepts as a kernel version non existing kernel name and builds the initramfs - this is really crazy (there are some warnings, but it tooks a bit of time before first "File does not exist".)

2. dracut initramfs build takes ages compared to mkinitrd

3. dracut spits some confusing warnings, I am not sure what to do with:
W: Possible missing firmware aic94xx-seq.fw for module aic94xx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql8100_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2500_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2400_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2322_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2300_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2200_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko
W: Possible missing firmware ql2100_fw.bin for module qla2xxx.ko

Am I doin' something wrong or this is expected behaviour?
