  liveusb booting issue due to xhci disconnect on dell precision 5510

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After creating a LiveUSB image and trying to boot it, unrecoverable
  squashfs errors are encountered because the usb stick disconnects. The
  laptop is a Dell Precision 5510 system (similar to the new Dell XPS

  I've not been able to get a full log in this situation, parameters
  like rootdelay= do not help although the boot process goes further.

  The details below are after booting with toram which seems to side-
  step this problem. I haven't been able to get logs from the non-
  booting case yet because some key programs like mount do not get
  cached and therefore can't be found.

  Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a 16.04 LiveUSB from daily image
  2. Try and boot system from LiveUSB
  3. Get lots of errors during boot because of the mass storage device disconnecting during boot

  Expected behavior:

  1. System boots into linux.
