That's what I was thinking - we don't support using any of this stuff
(raid, dm crypt/multipath, etc) in initramfs anyway, so we could just
write out /etc/modules-load.d/anaconda-storage.conf in lorax.

I'm testing a patch to do that now and will send it shortly.

This anaconda/dracut patch is already in f17-branch, though. Reverting
patches is fun and all (also: whee! fewer files!) but I'm not gonna be
upset if we decide to leave this alone and load modules via conf file in
