After sending the above I found out a super-cool feature: eudev solves
bug 154, "ASCII: System fails to shutdown/reboot with encrypted
filesystems": https://bugs.devuan.org//cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=145

I still get the messages:

Stopping remaining crypto disks...sda2_crypt
(busy)...sda2_crypt busy......sda2_crypt (busy)...sda2_crypt

but at the end the system does manage to shutdown by itself without me having
to keep the power button pressed. I'm going to install eudev in all the
other affected machines, and even on non affected ones! :-)
