Subject: [PATCH 1/3] Delete remaining references to the removed http pin

Commit 800d73185d7f ("Remove HTTP pin") removed the clevis http pin, but
there are still references of it in the docs and also the dracut module.

This was causing dracut to fail building the initramfs due the following:

dracut-install: ERROR: installing 'clevis-decrypt-http'

Suggested-by: Dominick Grift <>

Fixes: #73
