I wonder if it is would be possible to store such 'known plaintext' as real plaintext, thus making it useless for an attacker. But maybe this would make the cryptoloop not transparent to the above file system code.

The conclusion seems to be that it is more secure to encrypt each single file that the whole filesystem.
