in other news systemd started skipping over entries in my /etc/crypttab at random. these entries depend on an earlier entry to be unlocked via passphrase. this used to work. i do not understand.
i believe this might be a problem with how it resolves LVM PV dependencies.
reported the issue here https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1164017
