rm -rf is not expected to return an error.
we had several boot failures due to the udev initramfs script using errexit.
it was after the replacement of busybox rm -rf by nuke.
$  head -n 1 /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-premount/udev 
#!/bin/sh -e

aboves patch is based on the idea that nuke is the same as rm -rf.
