[Pkg-cryptsetup-devel] Bug#465763: cryptsetup: can't boot from USB device

Package: cryptsetup
Version: 2:1.0.6~pre1+svn45-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

The system can't boot from USB device if it is encrypted volume. The
reason is that initramfs cryptroot-script don't wait for USB and tries
immediately to open the nonexistent device.

The attached patch tries to resolve this problem in the same way like
main initramfs' script: it just gives a little more time for
usb-storage driver.

This bug is important for anybody who want to boot up from USB device.
