  systemd (229-4ubuntu21.4) xenial; urgency=medium

  * debian/extra/start-udev: test that sync parameters file is writable, before
    writing to it. On old kernels (e.g. v4.4) the file is available but is
    read-only, thus writing to it causes init to fail and thus raise a kernel
    panic. As an extra caution ignore failures to write into that file anyway,
    since synchronous scsi probing is not critical enough to prevent starting
    d-i. LP: #1784454

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * udev-udeb: ship modprobe.d snippet to force scsi_mod.scan=sync in d-i.

  [ Adam Conrad ]
  * debian/extra/start-udev: Set scsi_mod scan=sync even if it's builtin
    to the kernel (we previously only set it in modprobe.d) LP: #1779815
