[arch-general] crypttab support for non-root devices with systemd

I've installed Arch on a system with a two "disk" setup, where the first
disk is a SSD, which I'm booting from. The second disk is an encrypted
software RAID with LVM on top.

Now obviously I want the second "disk" to be unlocked and mounted
automatically on boot. This was no problem in the past.

Now with systemd it seems to be harder. At least I get asked for the
password on boot. This will unlock the device, however afterwards I have
to activate the LVM and mount it manually.

Is this already supported out of the box? The wiki mentions something
about scripts, which may be changed, but I would like to have something
more solid than self made scripts, which may break with every update in
the future.

Best regards,
Karol Babioch
