As covered in the upstream PRs [1], currently dracut does not detect the Arch style of initrd handling.
Thus the script fails (exit 1) and shutdown hooks will not be triggered.

With this [2] merged MR, if we store the initrd in `/lib/modules/${KERNEL_VERSION}/initrd` dracut will pick it up and everything will be fine.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any
