It seems the problem it's in LVM, or (more appropriately) in the
failure to create the /run tmpfs:

# mount | grep /run
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)
tmpfs on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)

It seems other problems (like 张春江's one with plymouth) have the same
reason. With systemd the /run tmpfsgets created, so maybe now that
systemd and udev are being merged this problem will go away.

For now, I think we can (finally) call this case closed; Dale, I would
strongly recommend the workaround (editing the config file) instead of
downgrading. Eventually you will need the new version anyhow.

Glad to hear it works, albeit with some issues (unrelated to the initramfs).

Regards.
