    Let's talk about subliminal messages, then. :)

    How sensible would it be to have a runtime or compile time option for
    choosing between zero padding and random values padding? I think the
    variable length of the padding could cause some performance problems,
    but I'm no kernel hacker nor cryptography expert.

    Great.
