Currently if you attampt to create too large file with luks you
get the following error message:

Formatting 'test.luks', fmt=luks size=17592186044416 key-secret=sec0
qemu-img: test.luks: Could not resize file: File too large

While for raw format the error message is
qemu-img: test.img: The image size is too large for file format 'raw'

The reason for this is that qemu-img checks for errono of the failure,
and presents the later error when it is -EFBIG

However crypto generic code 'swallows' the errno and replaces it
with -EIO.

As an attempt to make it better, we can make luks driver,
detect -EFBIG and in this case present a better error message,
which is what this patch does

The new error message is:

qemu-img: error creating test.luks: The requested file size is too large
