Attaching GELI device on boot

OK I found the issue:

I reinitialized the provider, same problem. Then I put a partition
scheme (BSD) on it.... here it works fine. My guess is this is not
intended and might be a bug. Geli should work fine for the "whole" disk
(no scheme at all). It works fine for the root device, but fails when
trying to attach another device on bootup. But I do not see the reason
for it :-/.
