Can't enter disk password using Laptop keyboard

I use dm-crypt to encrypt my hard drive.
This obviously means that I have to enter my passphrase on boot.

Sometimes after an update I can't enter the passphrase with the keyboard of my laptop. It just ignores every keypress. Rebooting does not help. If I connect a usb keyboard it works and after entering my passphrase the laptop keyboard also works. If I reboot again, I can enter the passphrase using the laptop keyboard.

Does anyone know why this occurs, or how to fix this.

You can find the output of journalctl -b for the boot where the laptop keyboard did not work here: and the output for a boot where the laptop keyboard worked here:

And yes, in HOOKS in my /etc/mkinitcpio.conf , keyboard comes before autodetect.
