    Moving Squashfs over to the crypto API is a good idea. When the zlib
    crypto module code is in the mainline kernel moving Squashfs, AxFS and
    CRAMFS over will be easy.

    Are you planning to do the necessary work to get this (or a subsequent
    version following the comments from Herbert Xu) into mainline?

    Cheers

    Phillip
