Bug Description

[Impact]

 * The users can not use netboot.iso to install Ubuntu on eMMC storage.

[Test Case]

 * Download netboot.iso of trusty/utopic/vivid from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-proposed/main/installer-amd64/current/images/
 * Use netboot.iso to burn an installation CD/DVD or make an installation USB stick.
 * Use this installation media on a platform with eMMC storage to install Ubuntu system.

[Regression Potential]

 * None

[Other Info]

 * None

Linux kernel in Ubuntu doesn't provide mmc-modules udeb like https://packages.debian.org/unstable/mmc-modules-4.2.0-1-amd64-di in Debian.
So it makes us unable to install the Ubuntu system into eMMC storage via netboot, aka http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1502772

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

I didn't use any preseed config. I just download the mini.iso and make an installation USB stick by it.
Then I plug the USB stick into a laptop that only has an eMMC system storage inside to do the installation test manually.
During the installation, I will connect to Internet to download other udeb packages and this is the usual usage for mini.iso.

It is expected that "Ubuntu 3.13.0-67.110-generic 3.13.11-ckt27", "Ubuntu 3.19.0-32.37~14.04.1-generic 3.19.8-ckt7" and "Ubuntu 4.2.0-16.19-generic 4.2.3" work and "Ubuntu 3.19.0-30.33-generic 3.19.8-ckt6" doesn't work.

It is not expected that "Ubuntu 3.16.0-52.71~14.04.1-generic 3.16.7-ckt8" doesn't work but we don't maintain utopic now so it is probably OK.

The only problem left now is that http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/vivid-proposed/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso is not up to date.

@Mathieu,

For 'vivid', can you look at comment #13 from 4$?

The only problem left is that http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/vivid-proposed/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso is not up to date.
