Re: [opensuse-factory] Broken /boot/initrd file after latest upgrade (Tumbleweed 20160519)

1) It is not compressed:

file /boot/initrd-`uname -r`
/boot/initrd-4.5.4-1-default: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)

file is not able to handle chained cpio archives.
What it reports is correct though: the first part is a cpu firmware
(on some machines), followed by the - not reported - second compressed part.

2) It contains only two files and some directories:

# cpio --extract --make-directories --verbose < /boot/initrd-`uname -r`

cpio is unable to handle chained cpio archives.

16 blocks

3) It is bigger than the content:

# du -h
12K ./kernel/x86/microcode
16K ./kernel/x86
20K ./kernel
28K .

All normal given the above.
