Until 10.2 yast used /etc/cryptotab (note the 'o') to configure loop
mounted crypto containers. 10.3 introduced support for /etc/crypttab
which is based on dm-crypt. Entries in /etc/cryptotab still worked but
were set up using dm-crypt instead. Now, three years later this is
still the case. It's time to drop support for the old /etc/cryptotab
and use /etc/crypttab only instead.
