This needs to be enabled in kernel, so we need to forward it to the FriendlyARM kernel devs.
Otherwise need to check, if it can be enabled via drop-in module, but should be in-kernel, if I am not mistaken. Here the related gentoo wiki, but that should fit for all Linux systems: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Dm-crypt#K ... figuration

I opened an issue on GitHub. Fourdee will know where to forward it best: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/2464
