So there's nothing special about key sizes with xts as stated basically at the
top of the bug report? 

Also I guess one should support xts-plain64 too? Is there any value in offering
xts-plain at this point, shouldn't we go to 64bit sector numbers directly?
Upstream even says that there's no performance penalty.

Kind regards
Philipp Kern, who also set up xts-plain manually (on a constrained SSD, hence
no plain64)
