I think a better solution might be to keep the encrypted fs on a single
normal LV.  Take a snapshot and send to remote.  Keep the snapshot
around.  On next upload, take a 2nd snapshot, and send the diff between
the two snapshots.  The diff can be efficiently computed from the COW
tables - accessible as dw-nn devices.  After sending the diff, delete
the 1st snapshot and go back to "keep snapshot around".
