This patch series for qemu contain multiple changes on the way encryption
and authentication code is handled.

The first patch is a behaviour change to avoid silent security holes on
the VNC server caused by user configuration errors.

Patches 2 and 3 are bugfixes to some of the multiple problems
I had with monitor_readline(), when testing the qcow encryption
support. monitor_readline() is still not completely functional, but
at least it allows the qcow password to be read when an qcow encrypted
image is specified on the command-line, now.

The remaining patches may be more controversial. The first half makes the
use of aes.c and d3des.c optional at compile time. The rest remove aes.c
and d3des.c from the source tree and replace them with calls to libgcrypt.

What's the availability of libgcrypt? Are there Windows versions readily available? That would be my biggest concern here.
