Hmm, I don't think so. At least not for the kernel part. But if you need
a CVS server you can still go to sourceforge. Or I can give you an
account on my server, no problem...

Hmmm. That's your decision. I'm just interested in the code, I don't
need to write something, but I can test it.

Ok, with "again" I want to say that there was a separate crypto support
for the lookup device for the older kernels. A ported version (not
finished yet I think) was integrated into one of the last kernels.
That's what I meant with "again".

I was just wondering. I think I will play with this.
