[PATCH 092/102] tile: expect new initramfs name from hypervisor file system

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Mon Apr 08 2013 - 05:52:59 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Chris Metcalf <cmetcalf@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit ff7f3efb9abf986f4ecd8793a9593f7ca4d6431a upstream.

The current Tilera boot infrastructure now provides the initramfs
to Linux as a Tilera-hypervisor file named "initramfs", rather than
"initramfs.cpio.gz", as before. (This makes it reasonable to use
other compression techniques than gzip on the file without having to
worry about the name causing confusion.) Adapt to use the new name,
but also fall back to checking for the old name.

Cc'ing to stable so that older kernels will remain compatible with
newer Tilera boot infrastructure.
