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.
