SubjectRe: [PATCH] crypto: serpent - add x86_64/avx assembler implementation
Quoting Johannes Goetzfried  
<Johannes.Goetzfried@informatik.stud.uni-erlangen.de>:

serpent_sse2_glue.c has priority 400 too, so you should increase
priority here to 500.

Actually about duplicating glue code.. is it really needed? On x86_64,
both avx and sse2 versions process 8-blocks parallel and therefore
glue code could be easily shared (as is done in SHA1 SSSE3/AVX).
