      Description

      In the scripts of Lustre RPMS, weak-modules command is run. And in that command, dracut regenerates initramfs. Unfortunately, this process is very slow.

      However, in most of cases, Lustre modules are not necessary for initramfs.
      Thus, regenerating initramfs in scripts of RPMs is a waste of time, especailly for developers, since they need to install/uninstall RPMs frequently.
