I'm a heavy user of this myself. It's especially useful because you can just
have a single luks encrypted ext4 without a lvm in between for a swap
partition or (even more yuck) using a separate (encrypted) swap partition.

Arch does support this, mostly because as far as I know, the resume_offset=
is consumed by the kernel, while resume= has to refer to the (unencrypted)
filesystem (/dev/mapper/root in my case). So, as long as this solution waits
for the device to show up in /dev/ (and especially /dev/mapper/ for my
case), this should work out.
