The problem is in:
I have suggested a solution where the mount root code is polling for the given
device until it arrives. The current device behaviour is the opposite: To wait
until all devices are present until mounting anything.
I'm currently not involved in any work on this. I would not recommend adding
more delay during startup to catch all kinds of USB devices enumerating.
