  No keyboard with init=/bin/bash

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've upgraded from Karmic to Lucid and am trying to deal with an ext4
  fs problem.  Under karmic, I would boot into a shell where I could run
  a manual fsck.  But now I get stuck at the graphical boot screen,
  without access to a shell.

  When I try to force booting into a shell using "init=/bin/bash" on the
  kernel command line in grub, I get an "inappropriate ioctl for device"
  error followed by the usual shell prompt.  However the system  does
  not respond to any keys I press.
