  Remote LUKS Root Filesystem Problem After Upgrading 14.04 to 16.04

Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  enclosed script /etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/mount_cryptroot is used to
  unlock LUKS root filesystem. Until 14.04 it was no problem to depend
  on existence of ${DESTDIR}/root for writing files, e.g. ssh public
  keys, scripts etc. From 16.04 a random home dir for root is used.
  Enclosed script contains an ugly workaround.

  Feature request: Please provide a variable for hooks which contains
  path to root home dir.
