   XPS 15 (9550) Won't boot with 4.4

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Neither 4.4rc3 nor 4.3rc4 will boot on my Dell XPS 15 (9550).  4.3
  boots fine.

  The boot process halts with "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid> does not
  exist", although the UUID does exist, and other kernels boot fine.

  I'm attaching a screenshot of the console boot log.  I apologize that
  it is hard to read, because my screen is 3840x2160 and each line is
  less that 2mm high.

  Here's my grub stanza:

                  gfxmode $linux_gfx_mode
                  insmod gzio
                  if [ x$grub_platform = xxen ]; then insmod xzio; insmod lzopio; fi
                  insmod part_gpt
                  insmod ext2
                  if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
                    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root  7e2ed448-28a7-465e-a5b0-58db19b2711a
                    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 7e2ed448-28a7-465e-a5b0-58db19b2711a
                  echo    'Loading Linux 4.4.0-040400rc4-generic ...'
                  linux   /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-040400rc4-generic root=UUID=7e2ed448-28a7-465e-a5b0-58db19b2711a ro  quiet splash i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 i915.enable_ips=0 $vt_handoff
                  echo    'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
                  initrd  /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-040400rc4-generic

  Possibly related is the following warning when i update-initramfs:

  $ sudo update-initramfs -u
  update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-040400rc4-generic
  W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/skl_guc_ver4.bin for module i915

  I have also reported this bug upstream:

  Please let me know what other info would be helpful.  Thanks!
