Summary0017053: Unable to boot new kernel
Lately, I was notified that there was a system upgrade available. Which I did. After reboot, my new boot menu read:

CentOS Linux (4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86-64) 8 (Core)
CentOS Linux (4.18.0-147.3.1.el8_1.x86-64) 8 (Core)
CentOS Linux (4.18.0-147.el8.x86-64) 8 (Core)
(0-rescue-[long hexadecimal number]) 8 (Core)

Booting the default (147.5.1) brought up the usual prompt for the passphrase required to unlock my encrypted volumes which I entered. But the system didn't recognize my passphrase and after a few unsuccessful attempts opened an emergency shell. (A message about a disk not found stated the obvious as the volume couldn't be opened).

Rebooting with 147.3.1 correctly prompted me for my passphrase, which I entered, recognized it and entered the system coorectly.

The boot parameters from the boot entries in the boot menu are the very same.

This is the second time this happened to me. Somehow, it just seems like the updated kernel is unable to unlock my disks.
Steps To ReproduceReboot with kernel 4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86-64. Fails everytime.
