unless somone finds out why initrds are size limited (not sure if
u-boot might solve that, but the current port of u-boot still doesnt
seem mature enough to me to base images by default on it yet) you cant
really use dm-crypt in ubuntu installs due to the fact that cryptsetup
and friends get pulled into the initrd once you install the encrypttion
related userspace packages (happening through dependencies), which makes
it to big for the bootloader (and renders your system unbootable)...
