Hi,

I found this posting while looking at an issue with cryptsetup-1.6.5 in initramfs:
http://www.saout.de/pipermail/dm-crypt/2014-August/004227.html

I believe this is same thing as reported here:
http://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/3281

Seems like the problem is that open(2) does not support O_DIRECT when on tmpfs.

I don't subscribe to your mailing list but wanted to share anyways.

Thanks!
