Indeed.

I won't be at kernel summit, regrettably, but I do intend to
methodically work through the kernel reviewing the various crypto
[mis]uses in places. I also have some larger plans regarding reworking
a few aspects of the crypto API, that I'll start a discussion with
Herbert about during the next several months. (I'm CCing Andy because
this is something the two of us have also discussed.)

So, expect some more things like this patch to gradually be rolling
your way, along with maybe larger overall changes. If you wind up
discussing this in any substantial way at the summit this year, please
do try to loop me in at some point.

Talk soon,
Jason
