Hi David,

To lend support for this patch series, we have a compelling use case in OpenPOWER
firmware. We need to verify that our key management command queue elements are
properly signed. However, we have limited flash storage space and want to avoid
dragging in a userspace library. Sub Swaminathan (on copy) has prototyped a
solution using these patches. We'd very much like to see them applied.
