This bug was fixed in the package initramfs-tools - 0.142ubuntu1

initramfs-tools (0.142ubuntu1) lunar; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #1988418). Remaining changes:
    - Make busybox-initramfs a real runtime dependency, fixing kernel install
      failures with cryptsetup
    - support mounting of loopback devices via loop*= parameters
    - Drop hooks/keymap, scripts/init-top/keymap, and associated code;
      console-setup takes care of this in Ubuntu.
    - Add a new 'fixrtc' script that tries to set the system clock forward
      based on the last mount time of the root disk; without this kludge,
      systems without a working RTC will end up in a perpetual reboot loop.
    - Trim leading whitespaces in dumpe2fs output so date command is happy in
      the fixrtc script
    - scripts/local-premount/fixrtc: ensure that the fixrtc script doesn't
      produce extraneous output from wait-for-root and date
    - Set hostname at boot, for the benefit of mdadm autoassembly.
    - Allow scripts and hooks to specify OPTION=VAR, and unless VAR is set to
      something other than "n", the script will not be included.
    - Restore the framebuffer hook and script, copying KMS and other
      framebuffer drivers into the initramfs, but make them optional; you need
      to set FRAMEBUFFER=y for these to be included.
    - Add hwaddr= alias for BOOTIF= for compatibility.
    - Automatically blacklist vga16fb when vga= or video= specified on kernel
    - add squashfs to list of 'most' modules
    - Add vfat and nls modules to the initramfs.
    - Add Hyper-V paravirtualised device drivers to the initramfs to allow
      booting of stock images in a Hyper-V guest.
    - ppc64el: enable PowerPC NX Crypto Coprocessor
    - Revised mountroot failure support.  This is now deprecated and
      effectively removed.  However, to prevent breakage in other packages the
      add_mountroot_fail_hook function is still present as an empty stub.
    - resume: only resume when the partition contains a resume image
    - Fix resuming a hibernate session from a swapfile
    - Add new initramfs-tools-bin package containing a binary that uses
      libudev to wait for udev to create the udev device, or wait for udev to
      finish processing if we catch it in the act, and returns the filesystem
      type as already probed by udev.
    - local_device_setup: use wait-for-root if it supports the device alias
    - debian/control: update Vcs-* links for Ubuntu.
    - Add support for uppercase and lowercase uuids.
    - init: Don't interpret "rootdelay" as a static sleep.
    - src/wait-for-root.c, scripts/local: add explicit support for PARTUUID, a
      syntax we may prefer for images that might boot without an initramfs.
    - scripts/local: Let rootdelay determine the wait-for-root timeout.
    - Increase rootdelay to 180s on powerpc/ppc64/ppc64el
    - Support roottimeout= as the authoritative name for rootdelay= since the
      Ubuntu interpretation of rootdelay is *not* a delay and this causes
      inconsistent behavior depending on whether the kernel or an initramfs is
      interpreting it.
    - scripts/functions: by default, when setting up networking, use dhclient
      if we're asked to do DHCP explicitly, or if we otherwise are expected to
      do things automatically.
    - scripts/functions: make sure we can try to start all available and
      suitable interfaces if ip= isn't set when setting up the network, and
      exit as soon as we get an IP address.
    - split out IPv6 options in its own cmdline parameter: ip6= ; always use
      dhclient in this case if the value set is anything other than 'off' or
      'none'. Furthermore, parse anything other than 'on', 'dhcp' or 'any' as
      the name of an interface.
    - rework the stop conditions so that we properly handle the ROUNDTTT loop,
      timing out after a short period of time and trying again after a short
    - add a 'done' parameter for both ip= and ip6= so that we can properly
      exit the ROUNDTTT loop once we know that either there is no work to do,
      or that we've achieved what we wanted (that is, to bring up IPv4, IPv6,
      or possibly both).
    - Just let dhclient scan the interfaces if none is specified for IPv6.
      (previously unnoted)
    - Do not handle ip=rarp specially (ipconfig hasn't supported it for some
    - Call dhclient in simple cases for IPv4 (this makes some small observable
      changes -- for example ip=bootp will now make a DHCP request too -- but
      nothing that seems important).
    - Do not let dhclient processes hang around past the pivot and have them
      respect the shorter timeouts ipconfig was given.
    - Only source ipv4 config in configure_networking() if it exists.
    - hook-functions, mkinitramfs, scripts/functions: support usage of dns
      after configure_networking.
    - Run unittests during autopkgtests.
    - Add some autopkgtests for the network configuration processing.
    - scripts/functions: write netplan config files to /run/netplan for
      network devices configured with configure_networking.
    - Adjust testsuite for correct expected netplan output.
    - Add tests to parse netplan.yaml with netplan generate.
    - Skip setting mac-address, unless unsupported unpredictable netnames are
    - scripts/functions:_render_netplan(): Make configure_networking() more
      resilient when called by set -e scripts.
    - scripts/functions: include a new option to skip enslaved network
    - Auto activate qeth devices on s390x hosts, when using ip= ip6= command
    - Add support for creating VLANs via vlan=eth0.1:eth0 on kernel
      commandline, and as VLAN= conf.d snippet.
    - Emit empty dictionary in the ethernets section, for static vlan configs
      without any matches, as otherwise it is invalid config.
    - Skip attempting to chzdev enable VLAN device
    - scripts/functions: Fix the fix for bug #1880735, fixing setting up vlans
      from the kernel commandline.
    - Drop renderer from netplan yaml, such that netplan uses the default
      rendered for the target system, i.e. NetworkManager on the desktop.
    - debian/{control,rules}: Don't run shellcheck on i386 to avoid pulling
      ghc into our minimal supported set for the pruned architecture.
    - Work out the kernel modules required to support ZFS filesystems and add
      them as necessary.
    - Add modules for nvme path components on multipath nvme.
    - debian/initramfs-tools.postinst: remove orphaned old-dkms initrd files
      in /boot.
    - Ensure we have a /usr/sbin directory in initramfs-tools-core
    - Drop usage of klibc-utils' fstype in favor of always using udev blkid.
    - Use set -a/+a around loading conf snippets, to autoexport hook
      configuration variables. This thus allows packaged hooks to configure
      each other.
    - Fix PATH to include /usr/local.
    - Revert upstream commit 0012977; Ubuntu's resume script implementation
      diverges from Debian's and this special-case handling of UUID (which is
      used as the resume target in the default scenario) is required here.
    - Filter out looping or broken symlinks from the initramfs, since they
      cause cpio to explode
    - Always mount loop-mount filesystems read-write; ntfs-3g and vfat can't
      remount yet.
    - Provide a clearer error on mount failure of the Windows host filesystem
    - Fix copying libgcc_s when there is optimized pthreads installed.
    - scripts/local: Re-execute cryptroot local-block script.
    - d/tests: Add explicit call to partprobe on net test, specially in prep-
      image and run-image.
    - scripts/local-premount/resume: Use readlink -f to correctly handle non-
      symlink $resume
    - d/t/control:autopkgtests running qemu need root, add needs-root
    - Cherry-pick merge request !26 to support xz compressed firmware.
      Uncompressed firmware is preffered, with a fallback to use compressed
      firmware files.
    - Improve shell scripts to conform to standards in shellcheck > 8.0
    - Increase image file to 2GB in autopkgtest
    - Force copy pthread and libgcc_s libraries via a stub binary. To avoid
      circular shared library dependencies between compiler and libc,
      libpthreads chooses to dlopen libgcc_s, instead of linking against it.
      However, we have no way to parse/know what it needs. And even when we
      hardcode to include libgcc_s1, we don't have a way to know which
      libgcc_s1 is needed on a given system and from which path to include it.
      But there is a hook-function to copy a binary and all of its shared
      library dependencies. Thus create a stub empty executable, with shared
      linking against pthreads and gcc_s1 and always include it in the initrd.
      This way at initrd creation time, ldd is used to correctly resolve these
      shared library dependencies and correctly copy them into the initrd.
      This removes hardcoding paths as to where these libraries must be copied
      from on the host.
    - Lower the compression levels for zstd and lz4 Following the discussion
      on the mailing list, we have reached a conclusion to lower the default
      compression levels:
      - For lz4, the compression level is lowered to 2 from 9
      - For zstd, the compression level is lowered to 1 from 9
    - Include nvdimm modules in block modules, they provide access to block
      pmem devices.
    - Include dax and nfit modules, also needed for pmem devices.
    - Add char/hw_random drivers
  * Removed patches obsoleted/merged by upstream:
    - Switch default initramfs compression to zstd, as it produces the lower
      overall boot time.
    - Don't recommend pigz, which is in universe.
    - Suppress shellcheck SC1010 errors, returning lots of false-positives on
      use of 'done' as a word.
    - hook-functions: when MODULES=list there will be no 'kernel' dir, so
      don't try to find anything there, as it will log an 'error' this is
      needed for amd64-ata-only autopkgtest to pass, or we would need to
      ignore the 'error' with allow-stderr
    - hooks/fsck: always include fsck binaries irrespective of PASSNO value,
      otherwise initrds fail to mount rootfs and have no ability to fix the
    - Cherry-pick merge request !51 to decompress compressed kernel modules
      for boot speed performance.
    - For net boot include most of net/usb modules, except niche modems.
  * Reinstate build-time shellcheck (but leave shellcheck out of
    autopkgtests as per debian bug #992798)
  * Ensure commented COMPRESSLEVEL is consistent with the default
