It would be nice if support could be added to grub-mkconfig so that if /boot resides on a LUKS-volume with a detached header it will not bail out.

Attached patch provides a new option to cryptomount to specify a detached LUKS header. If given, it's used instead of any header on the LUKS volume. This allows header to be removed from the volume.

usage example:

    cryptomount -H (hd0,1)/header hd1,1
