Ok, as far as partman-crypto is concerned, it does the right thing. It's
the cryptsetup initramfs script and hook that need to be changed to
support multiple dependencies of the root partition. I'll reassign this

In case anyone is interested: the solution is to change the
/conf/conf.d/cryptroot format so that multiple devices can be listed.
Scripts should in that case also check for multiple cryptopts boot
arguments. This will require quite some rewriting but will allow #382280
to be fixed at the same time. I'll try to fix this by next week.
