The FAQ can be found in the sources and the most current version
is at http://code.google.com/p/cryptsetup/wiki/FrequentlyAskedQuestions

Changes since last pointer:

- 8.3 explains how to use cryptsetup 1.6.4 or later to recover
  from whirlpool being broken in older gcrypt releases

- 6.12 now contains a LUKS header desctiption with 
  hex and decimal offsets.

As allways, feedback welcome!
