rue the day i upgraded to 367.

Boot splash with luks password prompt broken after nvidia upgrade to
Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers-367 package in Ubuntu:
Just got the nvidia driver update from 361 to 367. Upon reboot, the
boot splash (plymouth?) with the password prompt for the encrypted
root is missing.
The screen flashes dark purple and the switches to black with a
blinking cursor echoing anything typed. Ctrl-alt-del reboots. Booting
with kernel options "quiet splash" removed results in a text-mode boot
process where the password prompt is present, proceeding normally.
Wasn't sure if this was plymouth or nvidia issue, I'm guessing nvidia
because that's what upgraded and broke functionality.
Tried redoing update-grub and update-initramfs, didn't help. Found I
had both nvidia-361 and nvidia-367 installed (why didn't -361
uninstall?), but manually removing -361 (and redoing initramfs just in
case) didn't change anything.
