Bug Description

Good day, thank you for your wonderful work on Ubuntu.
I am a fresh user of flashcache. I was happy to find flashcache-dkms package present by default in Ubuntu. However flashcache-dkms does not attach flashcache ko and binaries to initramfs and therefore cannot be used to boot up the root filesystem. Workaround is to completely remove flashcache packages and install flashcache from git source, as described here:


Doing so creates the /etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/flashcache file and other files required to boot from flashcache drive.

I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64
$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 13.10
Release: 13.10
