Re: [dm-devel] Desynchronizing dm-raid1



All the ciphers comply, so the bug is only a theroretical issue (but I
didn't check assembler versions --- they should be checked by the person
who wrote them, assembler is write-only language).

Since every current algorithm sets the flag could you invert
its sense? Sorry to have to do this to you :)

Thanks,

There may be external modules.

If you don't set the flag when it should be set, nothing happens (just a slight performance drop), if you set the flag when it shouldn't be set, you get data corruption. So the safest way is this meaning of flag, so that not-yet-reviewed algorithms set the flag to 0 and prevent data corruption.
