Gmane
From: Jari Ruusu <jariruusu <at> users.sourceforge.net>
Subject: Announce loop-AES-v3.6a file/swap crypto package
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 25th January 2011 06:46:18 UTC (over 5 years ago)
loop-AES changes since previous release:
- Worked around block layer interface breakage on 2.6.32.x, 2.6.36.x, and
  2.6.37-rc kernels.
- Queue code removal/rewrite for all 2.6.x kernels. This fixes a SMP race
  when more than one helper thread (per loop device) was used. Default
  was/is one helper thread. This race could leave backing device in
  "plugged" state when it should have been "unplugged". This race was
  introduced in loop-AES-v3.5a, and affected only 2.6.37 and later kernels.
- Merged two loop kernel 2.6.x code bases back into one. This unfortunately
  re-introduces lots of #ifdef spaghetti.
