I think the safety was to do it is to make some sort of a package update
request for cryptsetup to be updated and wait until it is updated and then
update normally through ubuntu's official update channels.

The second most safety way is to build cryptsetup from source.The installed
version of cryptsetup managed by ubuntu's package system should have it at
either "/usr" or "/".Installing your own updated version at "/usr/local"
will allow peaceful coexistence btw your personal version and the version
managed by your distribution.
