    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
