[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/9] dm crypt: improve cpu scalability

With these changes we hope to improve dm-crypt performance for a
wide-range of dm-crypt use-cases and configurations.  Extensive
testing is planned to identify the performance difference(s) as
compared to stock v3.14-rc8.  We'll up this thread as results become

These changes are staged in linux-dm.git 'for-next' -- that is
primarily for linux-next test coverage purposes.  We'll make a call on
whether any of these patches are included in 3.15 when we have the
benefit of performance comparison results.
