cryptsetup will be changed in the future so that the key and options field
are mandatory. The reason is that the defaults will change over time (e.g.
if the LRW IV algorithm would be added to the kernel) and without having
the cipher hardcoded (or using) LUKS, this means your setup will blow up
when the defaults change (see bug #370180).
So, I'm merging this bug with #370180 and recommend that you add the key
(just write "none") and options field to your crypttab.
