Just make it whatever you want, it doesn't really matter in linux, where
identification goes by magic numbers, not such things as this and
You can easily follow the wiki with setting up dm-crypt/LUKS and btrfs
Also, please append mesaages to the bottom, as to keep messages in a
chronological order.
