Bug Description

Ubuntu 16.04 with LVM have delay around LVM mount.

  $ dmesg

LVM partition will be activated by scripts/local-top/lvm2 in initrd.
But scripts/local-top/lvm2 does not take care of resume variable which
is set from UUID base RESUME.

  $ cat /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/lvm2
  <snip>
  activate() {
  <snip>
    /dev/mapper/*)
    <snip>
  }

  activate "$ROOT"
  activate "$resume"
  <snip>

And then, scripts/local-premount/resume in initrd will always wait 5
seconds for activating LVM swap.
After mounting root filesystem, systemd will activate LVM swap.

  $ cat /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-premount/resume
  <snip>
  SWAPTYPE=$(wait-for-root "${resume}" ${RESUMEDELAY:-5})
  <snip>

RESUME is defined at /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume which is
created by plugininstall.py.
So plugininstall.py needs to support non-UUID base RESUME,
e.g. RESUME=/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1.

  $ sudo su -c 'echo RESUME=/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 \
  > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume'
  $ sudo update-initramfs -u && sudo reboot

  $ dmesg # after boot
