Hey Joachim,

Still some script adds the modules to you initramdisk, but i'm not sure
whether this is initramfs-tools (update-initramfs) or some thirdparty
script. Maybe you could add some debugging code to
/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/cryptroot and/or

David, could you give further advice?
