  All images beyond 3.13.0-34-generic don't boot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The linux-image-3.13.0-34-generic is the last kernel that (months ago)
  smoothly booted my Dell Latitude E6530 laptop with LUKS encrypted SSD.
  Usually it was asking for LUKS passphrase in blue graphical screen of

  All kernels since then just show the usual BIOS "DELL" in circle
  splash, then 1 minute black screen and then

    BusyBox, ...

    (initramfs) _

  I'm not aware of doing anything to cause the problem like changing
  booting, upgrading ubuntu release etc.

  Today I discovered that the current linux-image-3.13.0-40-generic boots in Recovery mode, asking for passphrase in text mode. Then I can resume normal boot in text dialog and almost all is up. But the xrandr does not work as well as monitor switching etc.
  Will return to the old -34 kernel.

  I asked in the local Linux group and other user reports the same, he
  didn't resolve the problem as well.

  Attaching the apport report.

  Thanks for hope.
