Not necessarilly, cryptsetup may be statically compiled.

Yes, but last I looked, the debian tools do not use kinit.  They call
run-init after manually mounting the device.

Either way, the cryptsetup point is rather moot, it was just a use
case to illustrate that it makes sense to have kinit command line
params come *before* /proc/cmdline.
