[PKG-OpenRC-Debian] Bug#750559: openrc: breaks boot if extra crypto devices are present

Source: openrc
Severity: important

I took the plunge to try out openrc on my work laptop. This machine has
2 crypto disks: for / and for /data

When using OpenRC, / gets unlocked. But for /data, OpenRC hangs, thus
making the system unbootable.

A SaK by the kernel allowed it to proceed. Attached is the syslog
snippet on what the kernel detected as the processes to be killed at
that stage.

I'll also soon send you the screenshot of the hung state during boot.

Question: Whey OpenRC is installed (and broken as in my case), how can I
boot back temporarily using the sysv init ???
