  initramfs-tools (0.136ubuntu6.3) focal; 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().

  * scripts/local: Re-execute cryptroot local-block script. (LP: #1879980)
      Currently, if an encrypted rootfs is configured on top of a MD RAID1
      array and such array gets degraded (like a member is removed/failed),
      initramfs-tools cannot mount the rootfs and the boot fails. We fix
      that issue here by allowing cryptroot script to re-run on local-block
      stage, given that mdadm is able to activate a degraded array in that
      point. There is a cryptsetup counter-part for this fix, but alone the
      initramfs-tools portion is innocuous.

  * d/tests: Add explicit call to partprobe on net test, specially in
    prep-image and run-image. (LP: #1893675)
