Support root on ehci-msm attached storage

Status in linux source package in Xenial:
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.
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.
This driver is only available on ARM platforms, minimizing the impact to all other architectures.
