[PATCH] libcryptsetup interface enhancements

Created attachment 345070 [details]
Add direct master key access to libcryptsetup.
The attached patch adds:
* crypt_luks_get_volume_info () and related functions, that allow
reading volume metadata more cleanly than attempting to parse the
output of crypt_luksDump ().
* Four functions that allow direct manipulation of the master key,
necessary for automated master key backup.
* Minor Makefile changes to fix build when builddir != srcdir.
The patch is necessary for https://fedorahosted.org/volume_key/ . I have sent it upstream, filing here as well so it doesn't get lost.
Is that patch accepted by upstream maintainer? (I mean ack for design, not commit in svn.)
I haven't received any response so far.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
The new libbcryptsetup library with master key acces interface is in rawhide already (cryptsetup-lib-1.1.*).
I do not plan this update for F11 because of library soname change.
