Hi Fabian,

I recompiled these for redsleeve. This seems also to work.

couple of comments though:
- I got an install error: "cp: target `/boot/overlays/' is not a directory"
    maybe add this directory to the kernel rpm
- and another: "line 6: /usr/sbin/dracut: No such file or directory"
    maybe depend on dracut (is this needed? it boots fine without)

Now only find out how to enable selinux :)
