     - add some error hint if dm-crypt mapping failed (key size and kernel
       version check for XTS and LRW mode for now) (closes: #494584)
     - display device name when asking for password
     - retain readahead of underlying device, if devmapper version supports it

   * update path to docbook-xsl stylesheet in debian/rules to
