Bug description:
  [SRU Justification]
  A regression in initramfs-tools causes it to autogenerate config in the 
initramfs saying to resume from any available swap devices, even if the swap 
device is ephemeral (i.e. swap encrypted with a random key).  This adds an 
inappropriate 30-second boot delay to any system with randomly-crypted swap, 
which includes any system that was installed with encrypted home directories in 
earlier releases.

  [Test case]
  1. Install the ecryptfs-utils package.
  2. Enable encrypted swap by running 'sudo ecryptfs-setup-swap'.
  3. Run 'update-initramfs -u' to regenerate the initramfs.
  4. Reboot.
  5. Verify that dmesg shows a 30-second delay before mounting the root 
  6. Install initramfs-tools from bionic-proposed.
  7. Reboot.
  8. Verify that dmesg no longer shows a 30-second delay before mounting the 
root filesystem.

  [Regression potential]
  This makes changes to shell scripts, and shell is a perilous language.  An 
unnoticed bug could cause all initramfs generation, and thus all kernel 
installation, to fail for some users.  A regression could also cause a user to 
lose hiberation support that they currently have.

  [Original description]
  Since upgrade to Bionic ubuntu is hanging at boot for about 30s. A `dmesg` 

  [    3.407230] clocksource: Switched to clocksource tsc
  [   34.632583] EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. 
Opts: (null)

  This is 100% reproducable and is always 30s minimum. I do not know in
  which package to report this properly – please excuse me.
