Hey Helmut,

I object against support for infinite retries. Upstream cryptsetup
doesn't support this, and I don't like to divert from cryptsetup
behaviour in the initramfs scripts.

Even if initramfs stuff supports tries=0 for infinite retries, starting
the mapping through /etc/init.d/cryptdisks will give you just one try.
