Follow-up Comment #6, bug #47108 (project grub):

Well, there are several issues.

1. Malformed cryptomount line with multi-device disk. This was likely fixed

    do not emit cryptomount without crypto UUID

Feel free to open bug report for your distribution and point to this commit.

2. You have VG consisting of two devices. Both devices must be present (in
general, we need all devices in VG to be able to use it). Unfortunately, as of
now GRUB does not support use of keyfiles.

3. It still could be possible to access LV if it is completely contained on
passphrase protected disk, but error in embedded config prevents entering
normal mode. This was (hopefully) fixed in

    kernel: print and reset grub_errno after each embedded config line

Are you willing to test current GIT?
