I hope not exactly like that. What happens when "lo->lo_offset" is larger
than "offset". Oops. Besides, the + operator takes precedence over the >>
operator on the third line.

Have you ever observed the sizes of the transfer requests? The sizes of
transfer requests change on the fly (and I'm not not talking about the last
partial block of a file). Meaning, any IV computation that depends on the
block size of a filesystem, is broken and must die! We do not have an option
here.

Just for the record, loop-AES package does 512 byte based IV and does not
care about filesystem block size. loop-AES package does not change kernel
sources and is almost immune to kernel source changes made by distro
vendors. Look, here I'm building loop-AES on almost vanilla 2.2.19aa2.

Here I'm building loop-AES on 2.2.19aa2-bad where I intentionally changed
loop.c in a way that makes the loop-AES patch fail, but Makefile has a
working plan B.

cryptoapi-2.4.3-hvr5/doc/loop-iv-2.4.3.patch applied, which makes the
