Bus 003 Device 004: ID 174c:55aa ASMedia Technology Inc. ASMedia 2105 SATA bridge
It is an external USB3 harddrive with a single 500GB lukscrypt encrypted partition on it. When plugging the drive in, nodes are created in /dev at /dev/bus/usb/003/006 and /dev/char/189:261 (these numbers change each time). However, using cryptsetup luksOpen on either of these nodes does not create an entry in /dev/mapper (on ubuntu, this works but the node is something like /dev/sdb1).
How do I mount this harddrive?

Google "174c:55aa", lots of problems with that hard drive usb controller. Tried it in a USB 2.0 port?
Things are pretty much exactly the same in a 2.0 port. The harddrive is fully functional in ubuntu, so I'm confident there's some workaround.
This problem was solved by installing linux-git from the AUR. So there was probably either a missing module or I needed a newer kernel version.
