Linux rescue after Windows 10 Creators Update

Last night I've updated my Windows 10. That was big update called "Creators Update". I don't know details what was changed (I noticed only new privacy settings and mail client) but one thing was significant for me as a linux user. When I wanted to switch to my openSUSE it opened rescue mode. It happend after I entered password to my encrypted home partition. My first thought: update modified my partition! Fortunately it was possible to open and mount it using cryptsetup. I checked also /etc/crypttable and I realized what is the root cause of my problems.
In my config I found /dev/sda7 but my current encrypted partition number is 6! Fast research and I found empty space on my disk between two partitions. Possibly the update removed one of partitions existing before (created during Windows 10 installation) and now all my linux partitions have decreased numbers.
I created new partition in the empty space. Reboot. Linux works.
