[dm-crypt] Cross-compile cryptsetup on Android

Wait a minute, hang on.

First of all, Android may run on several architectures, 'some binary'
will not necessarily run on your device.
Second, if you're doing research on computer security, I strongly
recommend to compile it on your own and not just to execute some foreign
binary. As a side effect, you will understand how things internally work.

Third and most important and please someone correct me if i'm wrong
here: AFAIR Android uses its own homemade androidish libc for system
calls with invasive changes (for some licensing reasons, afair). Because
of this, it might get hard to get cryptsetup running on android.
