Bug Description

In order to unlock my root FS using an external keyboard I need to add the following:

 hid_generic
 mac_hid
 usbhid

to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules. Otherwise, only the laptop's built-in keyboard works.

In LP: #229732, this was fixed by loading a few modules in the panic function. It seems the list of module could be augmented.
