Hello,

according to wikipedia [1] and other sites (e.g. [2]) MBR partition ID
for LUKS is E8. I tried to find GPT partition GUID for LUKS, but there
is nothing on wikipedia [3] nor google... So has LUKS already
preferred/assigned GUID for GPT partition table? There is already GPT
GUID for linux data, raid, swap, lvm and home partitions (see [3]), so
I think that LUKS should have GUID too.
