Systemd recently introduced support for disabling cryptsetup read/write workqueues,
giving a nice performance boost on fast flash drives.

quoting the commit message:

"This commit adds support for disabling the read and write
workqueues with the new crypttab options no-read-workqueue
and no-write-workqueue. These correspond to the cryptsetup
options --perf-no_read_workqueue and --perf-no_write_workqueue

The commmit id is 227acf0009bde2cd7f8bc371615b05e84137847d.

It would be nice to have this commit backported.

I tried it myself and it works for me (see attached PKGBUILD patch)
This task depends upon
