Cryptsetup 1.7.3 Release Notes

Changes since version 1.7.2

* Fix device access to hash offsets located beyond the 2GB device boundary in veritysetup.

* Set configured (compile-time) default iteration time for devices created directly through
  libcryptsetup (default was hardcoded 1 second, the configured value applied only
  for cryptsetup application).

* Fix PBKDF2 benchmark to not double iteration count for specific corner case.
  If the measurement function returns exactly 500 ms, the iteration calculation loop
  doubled iteration count but instead of repeating measurement it used this value directly.

* OpenSSL backend: fix memory leak if hash context was repeatedly reused.

* OpenSSL backend: add support for OpenSSL 1.1.0.

* Fix several minor spelling errors.
