Description

Unlocking TCRYPT volumes can take a long time, especially if an incorrect password was entered. It would provide better UX if the user could cancel the unlock operation if they noticed that they entered an incorrect password.

Currently no libblockdev functions are cancellable. So this is not easy and it would require discussing with upstream whether they even want this. I don't plan to work on this.
