Cryptodisk support is allowed to ask user for password which is not
possible for unattended systems.
E.g. in old config GRUB was looking for unifont under /usr/share. If you
make cryptodisk default a server doing this would stop in password
prompt rather than skipping unifont and going to text mode and
continuing booting.
