Bug Description

Compared ubiquity to the d-i based textmode-installer (used by the former alternate installer and the MinimalCD) we have no possibility to change the defaults of partman-crypto.

The textmode-installer offers following additional preferences:
- Encryption cipher
- Key size
- IV algorithm

Defining "partman-crypto/text/specify_cipher" with debconf-configure used in i18n.py had no affect for me. Also this key seems to be unused by partman-crypto itself.

Possible workarounds described here:

- https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/partman-auto-crypto/+bug/1015615

I'll verify that using the upcoming 18.04 release.
