Yes, they use bleeding kernels and it takes us some time to catch up
with those for KLIPS. If NETKEY can work for you, go for it. It will
be much simpler.

Though the best way for openwrt would be to incorporate the OCF patch,
and use KLIPS with OCF. Then on units like the wrt54gs and asus wl500gP
you can use the crypto accelerator thats in the SoC.
