Glad to hear and good to know.
The installer options for dm-crypt in De[vu,bi]an seem a bit outdated, or at
least not the standard dm-crypt is providing.
The maintainer is hopefully aware of that.
Performance trade-off is IMHO not a sane reason for for example using hashsize
of 128 or 256 and hash sha<512 nowadays. Maybe for raspi ...
I would really like to know what others (esp. Arno and Milan) would recommend
to use as a mnimum for a today's new installation (in a distro's installer),
may it be plain or LUKS.
