I grabbed cryptsetup from http://code.google.com/p/cryptsetup as what I read said that is the most recent. And then modified the code in there because the final block device images need to combine the file system, hash data, and some metadata into a single image and I don't want my users to need root privileges.

I can send a separate patch of those changes, but I'm not sure to where? Also to the LKML?
