    SubjectRe: [PATCH CIFS] use CryptoAPI MD4/MD5
    what about CryptoAPI is so expensive that you can't use a stack-based
    context?

    this seems pretty dumb converting a stack-based md5 context to multiple
    instances in multiple structures.

    the stack is almost guaranteed to be in L1 cache.

    multiplying that structure by N connections is just a waste of memory
    bandwidth. not to mention the locking crud you seem to need to do... the
    stack is implicitly locked.

    is CryptoAPI really this broken?
