i'll admit to a certain lack of familiarity with the /dev/crypto
interface, but doing software crypto in the kernel on behalf of
userspace makes absolutely no sense unless you're implementing
indirect keying with a trusted in-kernel keystore not accessible to

And a knob doesn't make sense for that because userland wouldn't have
access to the keys in the first place in that case..
