  Cannot enter passphrase during boot to decrypt root filesystem

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have DELL XPS 13 9343-2258 i7-5500U. with  ubuntu 15.04  and encrypted root filesystem.
  A few days ago it received system upgrade which updated linux kernel to 3.19.0-30-generic
  Since then I cannot type password for decrypting root filesystem during boot.
  Just after I turn on computer, usual graphical screen with "Enter passphrase" text and edit box appears but any character I type is not entered into edit box but shows up in the top-left corner of the screen. Pressing enter starts a new line of text in that corner.

  I can workaround this problem by entering grub menu and choosing to
  boot with configuration for previous kernel (3.19.0-28-generic). When
  started this way, enter passphrase screen works correctly - typed
  characters ends up inside edit box.
