As you already found, RHEL5 has no FIPS certified module for disk
volume encryption.

For RHEL6, there is such module in validation process
(based on LUKS/cryptsetup/dm-crypt).

But anyway, this is really question for Red Hat support channel.

I’m wondering if someone can tell me whether the current cryptsetup
or dm-crypt offerings support this or not. I tried looking through a
list of validated cryptographic modules kept by the NIST, but I
didn’t have any luck.

Also check modules in process page.
