I fail to see how this allows an encryted root-FS, it doesn't add gbde
support to boot0(ext) or to the loader. It needs access to an unencrypted
kernel. I don't think this is what Ronnel had in mind (overlooking the fact
that his suggestion to save the passphrase in the loader is insecure).

The man who can smile when things go wrong has thought of
someone he can blame it on.
