When using something like `cryptkey=/dev/disk/by-uuid/..:ext4:/keys/mykey` as kernel parameter, it no longer reads the USB-stick. This wasn't an issue on Linux 4.17. Maybe this is caused by the USB-keyboard changes?

Additional info:
* Linux 4.18.12.arch1-1
* Kernel parameter: cryptkey=/dev/disk/by-uuid/..:ext4:/keys/mykey with systemd-boot

Steps to reproduce:
* Downgrade kernel to 4.17, reads cryptkey
* Upgrading kernel to 4.18, doesn't read USB at all.
This task depends upon
