+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #775669 +++

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101
Firefox/14.0.1

I've installed a brand new openSUSE 12.3 system, including an encrypted volume
for /home.

When I boot normally i.e. without Xen i can unlock the encrypted volume.
When I boot Xen I'm not able to unlock the encrypted volume. The keyboard is
working - at least, Ctrl-Alt-Delete works, but the system doesn't seem to
actually be listening for a password for the encrypted volume, as typing and
hitting "Enter" do not actually result in an attempt to unlock the encrypted
volume.

The device is a Dell Latitude E5430.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Xen openSUSE 12.3
2.The encryption password is requested
3.The password cant be typed in. Also no reaction on just enter.

Actual Results:
Cant decrypt the encrypted volume .i.e. openSUSE Dom0 boots, but times out
trying to mount /home, and the result is that /home is not mounted.

Expected Results:
To able to type te password, so openSUSE Dom0 will boot normally and the
encrypted volume will be mounted.
