The point of adding the masterkeylen was that IMHO it wasn't clear that
luks->header.key_bytes is the master key length.

However defining something like qcrypto_block_luks_master_key_len(QCryptoBlockLUKS *luks) 
is way longer, and will force me to wrap just too many places in the code to keep 80
character limit.

Now I am thinking of other ways to make this thing better:

1. How about adding luks->masterkeylen and using it. luks state already has
several parsed values from the header, so using another one wouldn't hurt?


2. how about renaming the luks->header.key_bytes to luks->header->master_key_len?

Best regards,
