[Bug 1588946] Re: Support root on ehci-msm attached storage


Hello dann, or anyone else affected,

Accepted initramfs-tools into xenial-proposed. The package will build
now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/initramfs-
tools/0.122ubuntu8.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at

Bug description:
  If you install Ubuntu onto USB storage behind a Qualcomm QSD/MSM USB host controller, it will not be able to boot because the generated initramfs will not include the host controller driver.

  [Test Case]
  Install to a USB stick attached to QSD/MSM controller and reboot. Booting will fail because it will be unable to find the root file system.

  [Regression Risk]
  This driver is only available on ARM platforms, minimizing the impact to all other architectures.
