Follow-up Comment #1, bug #56233 (project grub):

That same issue was discussed on Calamares's github, issue 1203, here the
technical solution I suggest:
- setting a new variable in NVRAM, which would contain the preferred keyboard
layout. (this requires a small change in GRUB)
- adding all keyboard layouts to the EFI grub image (should be done by the
distro, no work required from grub)
The difficulty solved:
- when /boot is encrypted, the keyboard layout files are not accessible
( distros ship a binary EFI image that gets updated now and then, so they have
to take care of the inclusion of the required layouts in the binary itself, so
that these layouts are available at early stage.)
