  initramfs-tools (0.122ubuntu8.17) xenial; urgency=medium

  * 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().

  initramfs-tools (0.122ubuntu8.14) xenial-security; urgency=medium

  * scripts/functions: include a new option to skip enslaved network
    devices. (LP: #1802591)
      Include the new variable NETWORK_SKIP_ENSLAVED. When set to a
      value different than "0", this variable will cause any enslaved
      network devices to be skipped from the list of netbootable
      devices. This variable can be set via the configuration files
      under /etc/initramfs-tools/ or via any configuration file under
      the initrd directory /conf/conf.d/ via a hook script.
