It does work, other than for USB devices, which is LP: #1593379. It
got fixed in xenial-updates two days ago.

Perhaps you forgot to "update-initramfs -u" after that and have the
USB device already connected.

FWIW, this is the *only* reply to this thread that I will ever do. I'm
too busy following by secret agenda to reply to the other mails...
