Read
https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/11/2/162
and 
http://code.google.com/p/cryptsetup/wiki/FrequentlyAskedQuestions#7._Interoperability_with_other_Disk_Encryption_Tools

If it is not described there properly, please let me know.

(cryptsetup should be able to map all losetup encrypted variants,
but note using "create" command, not luksOpen)
