    Cryptoapi version of AES is slowest implementation of AES that I know of.
    For speed tests, please compare against more modern implementation.

    Below is one old AES128 speed test that I ran on my 300 MHz test box:

    KERNEL IMPLEMENTATION MODE WRITE MiB/s READ MiB/s
    2.6.1 cryptoloop single-key 5.21 4.08
    2.6.1 loop-AES single-key 9.52 7.56
    2.6.1 loop-AES multi-key(MD5 IV) 7.67 6.35
    2.4.22aa1 loop-AES single-key 10.55 10.16
    2.4.22aa1 loop-AES multi-key(MD5 IV) 8.75 8.13

    The cryptoloop implementation is busted in more than one way, so it is
    useless for security needs:
