Status in “cryptsetup” package in Ubuntu: Triaged

Bug description:
Binary package hint: cryptsetup

When there's no line for the cryptsetup root device, a misleading warning is issues during update-initramfs:
  cryptsetup: WARNING: invalid line in /etc/crypttab - 

I'm attaching a patch that handles this better, by outputting
  cryptsetup: WARNING: Missing line in /etc/crypttab for $target
in this case.

I've ran into this when manually doing the "mdadm-cryptsetup-lvm2-initramfs" dance, and uses another name during "cryptsetup luksOpen".
