Please apply it for stable.

For me, this patch fixed bug reported here
  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.device-mapper.dm-crypt/7966
  http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-crypto@vger.kernel.org/msg13102.html

Cryptsetup uses AF_ALG userspace crypto SKCIPHER interface and on
Raspberry Pi2 with Neon AES implementation it fails to unlock LUKS device
(if XTS and aes-arm-bs module is used).

After applying this patch it works as expected.

I did not have time to check it more in detail (we are always encrypting
the whole sector so this should not happen... but apparently it does.)
