The patches, as posted, are broken:

- they introduce a new configuration file when mkinitrd already has one
- they hardcode device names in the exact same way that /etc/crypttab
  does, meaning that it will fail in the exact same way with hotplugged
  drives or device ordering changes that /etc/crypttab does (and does
  with a vengeance in any FC6 -> F7 upgrade). Considering this is the
  root device, that's *bad*.
