      Description

      I am moving from Gentoo to Funtoo and my entire setup is based on BTRFS and I am using BTRFS RAID as root.

      My solution is to use an initrd to do btrfs scan to secure that all devises in the RAID is found. I generate the initrd with genkernel.

      When I try this in Funtoo there are no --btrfs and kernel is unable to find the root partition.
      I was not able to run btrfs in the boot shell.

      I can see that the version of genkernel in gentoo is 3.4.52.3 while the version in Funtoo is 3.4.40.8. Don't know if something was changed between those versions.
