Bug Description

I try to migrate to dracut, but plymouth support is broken below ubuntu.
The ubuntu package of plymouth is missing the command 'plymouth-set-default-theme'.
The debian packages are including this file.

As a result, dracut emits the following message

root@vt-xenial-main:~ [1070] # dracut --force
dracut: Executing: /usr/bin/dracut --force
dracut: dracut module 'bootchart' will not be installed, because command '/sbin/bootchartd' could not be found!
dracut: dracut module 'plymouth' will not be installed, because command 'plymouth-set-default-theme' could not be found!
....

If I install a backported package from debian the problem is resolved.
