    installer(8): Distinguish setting and getting of encryption passphrase
    The installer was using the *same* dialog to set and get the passphrase
    for filesystem encryption/decryption, which was confusing and a bit
    inconvenience (because the passphrase was required to input twice for
    The decryption passphrase was get in the following two places:
    1. Just after installation and begins to configure the system, the
       passphrase is asked to decrypt and mount the filesystems;
    2. Use the LiveCD to "Configure an installed System".
    This commit improves the fn_get_passphrase() function to distinguish the
    setting and getting of the encryption passphrase.  The dialog of setting
    the passphrase remains the same, but the dialog of getting the
    passphrase is simplified and doesn't require to confirm the input.
    This commit is derived from the patch by tuxillo.
