Integrating it in the bootloader doesn't really help you since then the
bootloader is the weak point.

In the end you'll always need an unencrypted kernel/initrd/bootloader...
so what one can do is booting from a USB stick,.. which you have always
with you... and then have a fully encrypted root-fs.
