Just a quick note: I changed this line in mm/slob.c to (unsigned long
long) and was able to load tcrypt without the kernel oopsing or
panic'ing. When running all test via

modprobe tcrypt

the tests seem to pass fine judging by /proc/crypto. Nevertheless module
insertion fails (as expected) but does not return EAGAIN but EMULTIHOP
instead...

Regards,
Adrian
