Encrypted filesystem

Because of inane U.S. export restrictions, cryptographic software can't be
exported from the United States. This is the main reason we don't have
cryptographic filesystem support in the kernel, I understand, particularly
since Linus will be moving to the U.S. soon.

Has anyone outside the U.S. pondered keeping an up-to-date set of patches
available on a non-U.S. FTP site? I have some patches, but they fail when
applied to the newer kernels. I can change them for myself, but for
everyone else I can't do anything since I'm in the U.S.

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the
world; The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of
innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full
of passionate intensity." -- "Second Coming" by Yeats.
