Using a 4.x kernel inside a nfsroot was not easy until now, because
aufs file system support was dropped from the Debian kernel
package. Instead overlayfs was added. But currently FAI does not work
That's why I've built a kernel package including aufs support with
kernel 4.4.6. It's now available in the jessie package repository at
Add this package name to /etc/fai/NFSROOT: linux-image-4.4.6-fai-amd64
You should also check if you have included the package dracut
(additional to dracut-network) in /etc/fai/NFSROOT. This is needed
since dracut 044+3-2 and was not yet added to the FAI packages.
After rebuilding your nfsroot, you can use the kernel 4.4.6 with FAI.
