I’ve used OCF linux before and it is very cool, however its BSD license taints the linux kernel.

Of course this patch is for 2.6.8 and I’m using 2.6.26, and am getting this error:

crypto/cryptodev.c:74: error: CRYPTO_TFM_MODE_ECB undeclared here (not in a function)
crypto/cryptodev.c:74: error: array index in initializer not of integer type

Obviously a lot has changed in the kernel from 2.6.8. I’m not sure how to proceed - maybe I should look at the 2.6.8 code, or I should just start editing the cryptodev.c / cryptodev.h.

There might be a chance that Michal’s code gets adopted into the kernel. That would be awesome. More info: http://www.docunext.com/wiki/Michal_Ludvig_Cryptodev
