I use two PCs with Archlinux. Both have Intel wireless cards that use the iwlwifi kernel module.

My problem is that when I use an initramfs created with dracut, no device nodes are created for the wireless cards, only for Ethernet. If I switch back to mkinitcpio everything works.

Does dracut have an issue with Intel wireless cards? I don't run any individual dracut config.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
dracut 056-1

* config and/or log files etc.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
just run dracut and create initramfs, reboot
This task depends upon
