Spawning shell within the initramfs

BusyBox v1.27.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.27.2-2ubuntu4) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) grep -r mpatha3 *
cryptroot/crypttab:mpatha3_crypt /dev/mapper/mpatha3 none luks,discard

Boot reproducibly fails because it can't find /dev/mapper/mpatha3. This is expected, since after install the device is named mpatha-part3.

We really need to standardize on the naming...

Filed in partman-crypto for now, I'm guessing that's what writes crypttab, and it might not be aware of multipath's special way of addressing devices?

This might well not be ppc64el-specific, given the symptoms, I'm pretty sure it will fail the same way everywhere. I will check on that.

partman-crypto looks fine at first glance, but I'm starting to suspect multipath-tools might be addressing devices differently in d-i; possibly because of how we build the udeb, or what we have in multipath.conf?
