Hi Simon

I've been working on a LUKS module[1] for GRUB, and have used your patch as a 
starting point. I have added a few extra functions to the crypto module, and 
implemented CBC in the crypto module itself. I have also added a number of 
ciphers and hashes[2]. I am still waiting for a proper review of my patch, 
and for some license issues to be resolved. I think that my changes have 
broken the devmapper module, but I intend to implement that functionality in 
the LUKS module some time.
