P/S2 Keyboard Support Now Modular. Breaks Some Keyboard Controllers

Moderator comment.  Changed the thread title from "[SOLVED] Cannot boot encrypted root filesystem after kernel upgrade" after making this a sticky topic

After the recent kernel update to 3.13, I can no longer boot my system.
When prompting for the luks password, my computer doesn’t react to any keyboard input (not even C-A-Del) and I have to power it down manually.

This is my mkinitcpio.conf:

MODULES="ahci asus_laptop libahci ehci-hcd uhci-hcd ext4 btrfs crc32c"
BINARIES=""
FILES=""
HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block encrypt lvm2 btrfs"
COMPRESSION="xz"

and from my syslinux.cfg:

LABEL arch
	LINUX /vmlinuz-linux
	APPEND cryptdevice=/dev/sda3:root:allow-discards root=/dev/mapper/vgroup-root rootflags=subvol=@,compress=lzo,ssd rootfstype=btrfs ro
	INITRD /initramfs-linux.img

The LTS kernel works fine.

Sure, but the thread's title is pretty specific to OP's problem and other users might still overlook it.

Good Point.  I think I'll (slightly) abuse my privileges and change the title.

Re: P/S2 Keyboard Support Now Modular. Breaks Some Keyboard Controllers

The default line in mkinitcpio.conf (I think that this is the default line)

HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard fsck"

does not work when using cryptsetup such that systemd prompts the user for a password, and must then be changed to

HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf keyboard block fsck"

At least this is true when using

MODULES="atkbd ..."

I am an evil patriARCH, peach!

Re: P/S2 Keyboard Support Now Modular. Breaks Some Keyboard Controllers

Any chance that this might mess with USB keyboards as well, or is it strictly a P/S2 concern?

Strictly a P/S2 problem.
Feel free to start a new thread if you are having a similar problem with a USB keyboard.   If you are only having trouble in X, be sure to read up on some of the issues some members have been encountering with rootless Xorg.
