    Subjectin-kernel crypto
    Hi all...

    Just a couple questions about the crypto routines present in kernel:

    - Are they just for in-kernel use, some like encrypted filesystems, or can
    it be used from userspace ?
    - It it is usable from userland, has it any advantage over doing it in
    userspace ? IE, for example, can ssh be faster it used the kernel crypto ?
    - If so, how ? Special library ? syscalls ?

    If this is on a faq everywhere, a pointer is just enough, thanks.
