Public bug reported:

I found that the boot process would stall within the generated ramfs
images on 16.04 when the rootfs existed within a thin pool with the
actual error referencing a missing /usr/sbin/thin_check executable. I've
attached my own initramfs hook script which pulls in all of the module
and library dependencies in addition to the /usr/sbin/pdata_tools binary
and its thin_* symlinks. It has worked for me on 16.04(.1) on both the
x86_64 and arm architectures, but I see no reason that it wouldn't work
anywhere else where the thin-provisioning-tools package exists and fails
to provide anything similar. Please feel free to include it as-is, or to
make any changes necessary changes to bring it into compliance with any
applicable standards or conventions, or to fix any issues I might have

  thin-provisioning-tools needs an initramfs-tools hook to support
  booting into a rootfs stored in a thin pool
