Bug Description

I was attempting to recover a lost home and ran ecryptfs-recover-private.
The user had a .ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase , but i did not know the password (that was why i was trying to recover).

No option was given to provide the mount passphrase.

code snippit:

   # Determine if filename encryption is on
   ls "$d/ECRYPTFS_FNEK_ENCRYPTED"* >/dev/null 2>&1 && fnek="--fnek" || fnek=
   if [ -f "$d/../.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase" ]; then
      # Use the wrapped-passphrase, if available
      info "Enter your LOGIN passphrase..."
      ecryptfs-insert-wrapped-passphrase-into-keyring "$d/../.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase"
      sigs=$(sed -e "s/[^0-9a-f]//g" "$d/../.ecryptfs/Private.sig")
      # Fall back to mount passphrase
