Post Please add USB3.0 kernel driver to initram (during boot)
Please add uas.ko (uas.ko.gz) kernel module (link) to initram.igz.

With this option users could boot from USB3.0 drive.
In my project I created a SystemRescueCD to an 1TB external hard drive where one partition (data) was NTFS and other is SYSRESCD (boot) with FAT32.
These drives nowadays almost exclusively with USB3.0
From "read me" I realized this project will not be a 1 min project...
But instead of 10 mins installing (what I expected, because I had to make "everything" manually - double checking what to do from usb_inst.sh),
I did the task for many hour, due to
- understand why boots half from external drive but cannot finish
- realize and confirm that initram.igz had lack of USB3.0
- create an appropriate initram.igz (BTW I was not able to create a working initram with total repack - my laptop has Ubuntu 15.10, so I just added some files to the existing initram.igz)
...and I did all of this because of missing one common kernel module.

I searched through forum - manually and via google.
There was plenty error due to this USB3.0 non-support.
