NAME cryptdisks_start - wrapper around cryptsetup that parses /etc/crypttab.
SYNOPSIS cryptdisks_start <name>
DESCRIPTION cryptdisks_start is a wrapper around cryptsetup that parses /etc/crypttab just like the initscript /etc/init.d/cryptdisks does and starts the dm-crypt mapping that corresponds to <name>. Note that this wrapper passes --key-file=- to cryptsetup, so the passphrase in any referenced key file must not be followed by a newline character.
