Missing unix.ko in 4.6 initrd prevents LVM boot
Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:
Status in lvm2 package in Ubuntu:
Somehow recently the default kernel config for kernel 4.6 was changed
from CONFIG_UNIX=y to CONFIG_UNIX=m.
This however prevents systems with full disk encryption to start

The proper fix would either be to restore CONFIG_UNIX=y or to force
the unix.ko module to always be included (and loaded) in the initrd.
The latter is likely to be the better approach, thus filing this
