Re: [PATCH 2/5] Set initrd load address to 32MB for s390x (#546422).



Ack.
Very nice, since it is now consistent with the default initrd address we
use in the zipl bootloader for the installed system (bug 526339).

One more usability comment below which is unrelated to the bugs.

Don't you want to change this text here. It appears to the user on the
hardware management console (HMC) or the service element (SE) when they
IPL an LPAR as a kind of menu item to choose from and that they know
WHAT they are about to IPL in that LPAR. It does not even say that this
is Fedora or RHEL respectively nor its release number, not even that it
is Linux.
