On the other hand, I have problems cause Ubuntu boots before USB scaning
is over. I have one laptop with "/" on USB. Booting from that USB
allways fails since my USB storage is detected after initrd allready

This is a bug, but as you can see this bug and your problem are
diagonaly different. I need Ubuntu to stop while USB is performing
scaning, and you want it in background. Major bug (total loss of
funcionality) against minor bug (making ubuntu looks nicer :)
