first rough tests seem to work properly, but I didn't find time to
test with luks-encrypted rootfs on top of several physical lvm volumes
// raid devices yet.
unfortunately I'm rather busy at the moment. will see whether I'm able
to do the remaining tests within the next week.

regression described in bug#659688. and I didn't find time to work on
that one yet at all.
