Bug Description

Installed 15.10 AMD64 on a MacBook Pro 7,1 and used LUKS full disk encryption
Did all updates
Added nvidia-current to get the binary blob GPU driver

Reboot, get a "please unlock disk sda3_crypt" screen which has an input box, but if you type in it, the text appears on the screen elsewhere.

@Mathieu, unsure if that could help but Debian had this patch (which is in upstream 0.9.2) that fixed password enter issues

We've tested this patch, it doesn't appear to solve the issue. That was indeed my first guess :)

I confirm this on LTS trusty with dell optiplex 9020 (nvidia gfx) so I am reverting to 3.13 or 3.19 ?

Yea actually 3.19 and 3.16 are broken , 3.13 is fine, I can test other kernels if needed.

USB Keyboard is working again once upgraded to :
Linux version 4.4.0-999-generic (kernel@gomeisa) (gcc version 5.2.1 20151010 (Ubuntu 5.2.1-22ubuntu2) ) #201512202100 SMP Mon Dec 21 02:02:12 UTC 2015

Note PS2 keyboard worked on earlier versions , but not nouveau nvidia driver (not in regular resolutions).

Unfortunately It's not very stable, but that's other bugs to open...
