loop-aes? since when? 

ever since the 1st release loop-aes was "sadly not supported", as far
as I can recall; see http://grml.org/kernel/#patches (search for
loop-aes):

loop-aes

Using loop-aes with >=2.6.13 fails with 'register_blkdev: cannot get
major 7 for loop'. grml requires a stable loopback device interface
(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y) but loop-aes has different requirements so
loop-aes is not part of grml. :-/


either this info is outdated or has been outright neglected.
