The new Kernel version doesn't boot my luks encrypted drives encrypted with aes-xts-plain64, hashed with sha512.

Kernels i tested:
linux 4.20.6
linux-hardened 4.20.6

Has the compile flag for aes-xts-plain64 been turned off in the new version?

Steps to reproduce:
Encrypt a drive with cryptsetup --cipher aes-xts-plain64
Install linux 4.20.6 from the repo.
Try a cryptsetup open.
