dmsetup info /dev/mapper/mycrypt gives:
UUID: CRYPT-LUKS1-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-mycrypt_unformatted
And with grub-probe -t cryptodisk_uuid /mnt/crypt
you have:
Where xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the unique UUID which is also
used in /dev/disk/by-uuid/xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx, just
formatted differently.
The patch as is unnecessarily uses a heavily different codepath than
non-crypt ones. From maintainance point of view this is unacceptable.
