These options are distro-specific but it's ok to provide the debian ones
and let distros handle the differences. On the other hand this uses
third-party tools which shouldn't be necessary since grub in bzr trunk
already has LUKS support. Could you use our own grub-probe as base? Also
we should supply the LUKS UUID and not underlying device since it's
subject to change.
