Ok, this seems like a misunderstanding - I am not talking about patching 
the kernel tree and then compiling AES as a module, but about compiling 
the whole openswan KLIPS out-of-kernel. In that case AES fails to 
compile as a module.

True, I was a bit astonished to see another AES module in 2.2.0, as I 
expected that it would be fully based on the cryptoapi.
