--- Comment #6 from Fabian Keil <fk at fabiankeil.de> ---
Reopen as the patch only solves the problem for GELI boot
partitions without passphrase.

>From the commit message (which bugzilla seems to hide really well):

"r296963 added support for GELI boot devices with passphrases
and without keyfiles but the passphrase prompt was shown for
all boot devices, including those that only required a keyfile,
or that required both a keyfile and a passphrase.

Attaching such devices (obviously) did not work and as a result
r296963 broke unattended booting from these configurations.

This commit suppresses the promt for passphrase-less boot
devices but does not suppress it for boot devices that require
both a passphrase and a keyfile as this currently can't be
deduced from the GELI metadata.

Probably a new GELI on-disk flag should be added to solve this."

The problem that geli-encrypted partitions on slices aren't
detected properly has not been solved either.
