SubjectRe: [PATCH] Delete cryptoloop
Date
Hello,

Well, we have an option to be able to select EXPERIMENTAL code when
making a configuration, why not adding on option for DEPRECATED code ?

Then, you'd just have to migrate cryptoloop into this DEPRECATED
area.

Kconfig should be able to handle that very easily !

Regards,
Paul
