Dear maintainers,

I have Debian jessie running on a Wandboard armhf device. Some of the 
filesystems are located in LVM logical volumes on an external USB disk. This 
causes boot to enter emergeny shell, because the logical volumes cannot be 
found. The only way I found so far to prevent that is to use sysvinit instead 
of systemd and insert a sleep in /etc/init.d/lvm2 before vgchange.
