/usr/share/initramfs-toos/hooks/cryptroot does not honour the
Status in cryptsetup package in Ubuntu:
The patch https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cryptsetup/2:1.4.3-4ubuntu4
+if [ -n "$CRYPTSETUP" ] && [ "$CRYPTSETUP" != "n" ]; then
whether there is CRYPTSETUP=y has been set.
The description of the patch says that CRYPTSETUP=y in
/etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf would be enough.
But it isn't.
update-initramfs calls mkinitramfs. CRYPTSETUP is still set to y.
Then /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/cryptroot is called via
run_scripts/call_scripts. The variable is still set before the
cryptroot script is entered, but is unset in the script.
The problem is that update-initramfs does not put /sbin/cryptsetup
into initramfs. My root filesystem is unencrypted but I mount an
encrypted partition during boot, so I need cryptsetup in initramfs.
