[dm-crypt] Does cryptsetup use cryptodev or only AF_ALG

Dear All,

I see in the cryptsetup source that only AF_ALG is used for all the
operations like PBKDF2 and masterkey encryption/decryption.

   - Please let me know if my understanding is correct.
   - Is there any way to use cryptodev while using cryptsetup
   - Also, does DM-Crypt automagically uses cryptodev when available ?

Thank you
