ive recently discovered some faster cipher/hash combinations and want to
revive my old computer so-to-speak

can i re-format an existing luks partition (as the same /dev/sda[x] and
simply re-copy an fsarchive operating system backup straight to it
without anything further required ?

so i assume this is just a new crypto layer, and the operating system
will boot accordingly ?
