    As far as I remembers, Ubuntu uses klibc in initramfs, right?

    What version of klibc do you have? There was a bug in klibc that causes
    such behavior on PIE-randomization-enabled kernels, and has been fixed in
    klibc-1.45 by commit [1]. Please make sure you have updated klibc version
    that doesn't contain this bug.
