Ah, looks good. I'll build and test shortly.

Is the 'alg' subdirectory of linux/net/ipsec actually used? As far as I
can tell, it's not.

Also, should the 'defconfig' still reference all the ALG stuff that isn't
supported right now? In a lot of ways, I'd prefer to see Openswan go to
pure CryptoAPI support, and just phase out the internal algorithms. (Well,
that's from a layman's view, though - there could very well be good
technical reasons to keep our the algorithms.)
