Can loop-aes handle devices with more than 2TB? As I understand it there are devices which have more than 2^32 sectors others with 4KB sector size. Are both ways supported and safe to use?

    IV computations use 64 bit sector number, if kernel supports that.
    If kernel supports only 32 bit sector number, then upper 32 bits are set to zero.
    On-disk format is same either way.
