Summary

Currently the installer uses -bg, but it seems like it'd be sensible for -g to imply that we want this partition to be attached at boot since that's presumably our root filesystem.

This doesn't break multiple encrypted disks?
If I have 3 disk and only one should be decrypted by the loader?

I'm not sure I follow- I have no intention of changing how loader determines what should be decrypted, just to reduce/eliminate the need to tag both GELIBOOT and BOOT to get the kernel to taste the partition that was tagged for decrypting by loader.

Oh sorry I miss read the patch.
Then this looks good to me :)
