Hi Martin:

Don't think OOB is used to generate the initramfs, from the kernel spec

# set to 1 to build the initramfs during kernel-build time
# set to 0 to build the initramfs during %post on the host
%define buildinitramfs 1

Doesn't that mean the kernel rpm provides pre-build initrd<version>.img
and actrd<version>.img? Doesn't OOB just sign what is in the kernel rpm?

Think you would need to re-create initrd.img as needed then place the
revised initrd.img into the image via OOB, to be signed by OOB.
