The issue is still present with 4.4.0-42. It's completely preventing me

lvmetad is not active yet, using direct activation during sysinit
rootfs: clean, 271911/1831424 files, 1561286/7323648 blocks

I also tried the following kernels (from
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/) as well:
- v4.7.7 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.7.7/)
- v4.8.1 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.1/)
I installed these by booting a live cd and chrooting into the "rootfs"
filesystem, and then updating grub.
The problem is still present in all of these kernels (with the slight
variation that the error message is only shown briefly, and replaced by
a blank screen)
