initramfs-tools (0.130ubuntu3.11) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Guilherme G. Piccoli ]
  * scripts/functions: Prevent printf error carry over if the wrong
    console is set. (LP: #1879987)
      The function _log_msg() is "void" typed, returning whatever its
      last command returns. This function is the basic building block
      for all error/warning messages in initramfs-tools. If a bad console
      is provided to kernel on command-line, printf returns error, and so
      this error is carried over in _log_msg(). Happens that checkfs()
      function has a loop that runs forever in this scenario (*if* fsck
      is not present in initramfs and "quiet" is not passed in the
      command-line). If that happens, boot is stuck and cannot progress.
      The simple fix hereby merged is to return zero on _log_msg().

  * scripts/local: Re-execute cryptroot local-block script. (LP: #1879980)
      Currently, if an encrypted rootfs is configured on top of a MD RAID1
      array and such array gets degraded (like a member is removed/failed),
      initramfs-tools cannot mount the rootfs and the boot fails. We fix
      that issue here by allowing cryptroot script to re-run on local-block
      stage, given that mdadm is able to activate a degraded array in that
      point. There is a cryptsetup counter-part for this fix, but alone the
      initramfs-tools portion is innocuous.

  * scripts/functions: Change netplan render for net_failover master
    devices. (LP: #1820929)
      Modify the _render_netplan function to check for network interfaces
      that are net_failover master devices. When found, such devices are
      matched only by name, not by MAC address, as the MAC is not a unique
      identifier for the net_failover case. In the net_failover architecture,
      the MAC address is used to manage the membership of the net_failover
      interface set, thus multiple interfaces will be assigned the same MAC
