I verified that the attached patch works as expected.

The feature doesn't hurt. It doesn't degrade anything.

I don't see a use for the initscript, but within initramfs it should be
possible to prevent booting without a password using tries=0.

If you don't want to take my patch, please clone this bugreport and tag
it as wontfix, upstream.
