Just a final note, and trying not to go too off-topic, this is maybe an
issue with my "mount" package version more than a "loop-aes" problem.
But I am not sure of which program or code checks for the "correctness"
of an algorithm name when you use "losetup" (in fact, the /proc/cipher
files don't appear on my system :-).

I will investigate it further, but this is off-topic here, so end of
thread on my part ;-).
