I don't think Linus is in favour this this. As IMHO this can be entirely
done in user space, and we don't need an big, bloated kernel. But even we
do it, what would be use of it? There is already suppport for encrypted
volumes, the secure rcp/telnet/ etc are alredy done by ssh stuff, and we
are not going to crypt memory ;)

Yes, but isn't some form of crypt in the kernel necessary for a full
ipv6 implementation?
