1.) what guarantees that we reach user space ?

2) If it is _valuable_ information which we can gather via kernel
output, then it is much more conveniant than asking the user to type
whatevercryptictoolcommandline and provide the output.

Nervertheless the changelog of the patch needs some useful information
why we actually need this information.
