This is a problem reported from mailing list:

hello ,
we have the following question :
during diskless installation we use the genimage command with -l <size> ( to reduce the size of the size of root system .)

why dracut mode seems to ignore the -l option of genimage command ? ( it seems to be only in mkinitrd not in mkinitrd_dracut

thanks

To workaround this problem, the user can manually modify the genimage::generic_post to modify the mount options for the "/", add -o size=$limit.

    Yang Song, Can you look into this open xCAT bug, and provide a response back to the defect reporter. Since we are close to xCAT 2.8 GA, I moved this bug to 2.8.1
