The cryptsetup 2.1 uses LUKS2 format as the default LUKS format. This
change introduced the following issues:

* LUKS2 requires kernel userspace crypto API to be available
  linux-yocto doesn't enable these options by default. If missing these
  kernel modules, the cryptsetup will fall back to using dmcrypt-device
  for keyslot processing.

  $ cryptsetup --debug --type luks luksFormat /dev/sda3
    Checking if cipher aes-xts-plain64 is usable.
    Userspace crypto wrapper cannot use aes-xts-plain64 (-95).
    Using dmcrypt to access keyslot area.

* The grub can not decrypt a LUKS2 encrypted boot partition because it
  doesn't support LUKS2 now.
  See grub bug: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?55093

Add a PACKAGCONFIG for luks format and set the default LUKS format to
LUKS1. The users can specify '--type luks2' in cryptsetup command line
if they want to use LUKS2.
