Ah, ok. So your only request is that raw hash data image is created
automatically as file (if parameter is not a block device directly)
and that this file doesn't need to be pre-allocated, correct?

I think I can do it even without introducing new library function
(I really do not want next context constructor type here).

I'll reply once I will have something ready for testing.
