Cryptsetup 1.6.4 doesn't work in initrd

I've compiled and replaced Slackwares old version of cryptsetup.
Problem is that when I create initrd after upgrading cryptsetup, system doesn't boot ( can't unlock rootdev and gives some error ). Also when booting with initrd which I created before upgrade system boots but non-root filesystems are not mounted.

Maybe I'm the dummy here but... how is the kernel supposed to load an encrypted image? It basically knows bios when it reaches for the kernel... what am I missing here?
