Re: cgd on root

>>> The big question is where to store the cgd parameter file.

I'm not convinced there is any need to.

The only plausible configuration I see is "prompt for key"; when I was
looking at putting root on cgd, one of the precursors to it was making
cgd capable of prompting for keys itself, instead of depending on
userland to do it.  The rest of the configuration for root I was
planning on wiring in via kernel compile options.

If you really want to have a traditional cgd parameter file, you need
to either put the code to read it into the kernel or you have to have
at least a little userland around; if you take the former route, I'd
probably compile the parameter file into the kernel too.
