    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
