    sdcard initrd support to suport boot fromiso · 9fdef751

    sdhci and subdependencies initrd kernel modules loaded to support Heads kexec'ing Tails kernel from sdcard integrity validated iso, permitting Tails to boot from a Read Only sdcard (fromiso). Heads boot device is referred by device/by-uuid (fromiso) to continue Heads kexec boot process from OS initrd loaded modules, prerequisite to continue kernel booting.
    This would permit measured boot (on-boot iso integrity validation from Read Only sdcard) on many tamper evident laptop models( RYF x200, QubesOS to be certified x230, x220 and many other laptops using those modules for memory extension slot support).
