[Pkg-cryptsetup-devel] Bug#466175: cryptsetup: initramfs hook script doesn't check for LABEL= mounts

Package: cryptsetup
Version: 2:1.0.6~pre1-1
Severity: wishlist


The hook script /usr/share/initramfs-tools/cryptroot
does not check for "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab.
Such a LABEL= entry *could* point to a root filesystem that
is on an dm-crypt'ed device so it should be added to 
/etc/initramfs/conf.d/cryptroot --- but it currently is not.

Since a user can use whatever name they like for a cryptroot
partition adding a label to the block device seems a bit redundant,
which is why the severity is wishlist.
