SubjectRe: [PATCH] padata: Use RCU when fetching pd from do_serial

Hmm, it doesn't work because the refcnt is attached to the old
pd. That shouldn't be a problem though as we could simply ignore
the refcnt in padata_flush_queue.

However, I think this leads to another bug in that pcrypt doesn't
support dm-crypt properly. It never does the backlog stuff and
therefore can't guarantee reliable processing which dm-crypt requires.

Is it intentional to only allow pcrypt for IPsec?
