    Ugh, you should at least be checking if you've built the kernel with the
    same config options :-) Of course, if you did a simple "make oldconfig"
    but still lost some config options, then that's definitely a regression...
    (was that the case here, btw?)

    Well, DM_CRYPT /is/ a device-mapper target first. "Cryptographic options"
    is for _actual_ crypto code, such as algorithm implementations etc. Users
    such as encrypting file systems / IPsec / dm-crypt are better off at their
    logical places, I'd say.
