The efifb initialization by grub is deliberate, to try to provide
flicker-free boot on efi-capable systems.

graphics fail to initialise correctly, in kvm with cirrus graphics
(after LUKS install)
Status in “cryptsetup” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “grub2” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “plymouth” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
reproducible with ubiquity or alternate installer in KVM virtual machine:
1) select lvm + encrypted instalation
it fails to boot, in a way that I get "no video mode activated" and I cannot type the password in to unlock the drive.
As a workaround, I had to:
1) force reboot machine
2) then grub options come up
3) select recovery mode
4) then I can enter the password using text interface
5) resume normal boot
Disabling splash, brings up text interface to unlock the drive &
allows to boot.
