[dm-crypt] Detached header offset

Hey all,

I assumed that there was on option to give the offset of the header on a 
disk, but this option is only accepted for loopaes and plain devices, 
according to the man.

There's another option to give an offset, for the key-file, but as far 
as I could understand, this is for the offset of the key slots 
relatively to the start of the partition they're on.

Also --align-payload only works on the data.

So is there a way to place a detached header arbitrarily on a disk, and 
not at the start of a partition?

Best regards,
