Bug#595827: initramfs-tools: Add hid-cherry and hid-logitech to initramfs

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.98.1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Both a Cherry and a Logitech keyboard I own cannot be used at early boot time unless one also adds the hid-cherry / the hid-logitech module to the initramfs. The attached patch adds those two modules to hook-functions.

For the Cherry keyboard, kernels up to 2.6.32-3 are not affected, from 2.6.32-5 (squeeze default) onwards all tested kernels were affected. Didn't do detailed checks for the Logitech keyboard.

The used devices that exhibit this problem are:
ID 046d:c30a Logitech, Inc. iTouch Composite
ID 046a:0023 Cherry GmbH CyMotion Master Linux Keyboard

Severity level important, since this makes booting with encrypted root partition impossible using those keyboards.
