Bumping up encryption to AES-256 by default
Hi. I noticed Gnome Disks uses AES-128 by default instead of AES-256 like Debian does out of the box. Having 256 bit symmetric keys is good practice for long term security especially in a coming era of quantum computers. (Whether they materialize or not is debatable but why not have a sufficient margin if it's easy enough?) It is also the recommended level by NIST.
This is verified by running:
cryptsetup luksDump --debug /device/
AES in XTS mode uses a keysize double its bit size (512 in this case) since with XTS the key is split in 2 so you actually get AES with 256-bit keys.
A partition created by Gnome Disks shows it's only using MK size 256 instead of the expected 512. Please modify the source  to pass 512 bit size to cryptsetup.
