SubjectRe: Crypto Fixes for 2.6.27
Hi Linus:

This push fixes a security problem in the talitos driver which
was added after 2.6.26. When triggered talitos may cause two
IPsec packets to be generated with the same IV which weakens
the protection offered by encryption. This only affects talitos
users obviously.

Please pull from

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/herbert/crypto-2.6.git

or

master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/herbert/crypto-2.6.git
