If this isn't fixable, the script should not fail (leaving the system in
an inconsistent state) but warn it can't use UUID's or labels on some
file systems, including the warning that the system might not boot

I am happy to switch to dm-crypt if somebody can help me to setup
dm-crypt with the following characteristics:
- master key gpg encrypted, decryptable with multiple private gpg keys
- gpg private keys stored on gpg card, no storage of gpg private keys on
- mounting of volumes early during boot
Until I know how to do that with dm-crypt, I stay with loop-aes.

best wishes,
