You can also use loop-aes (available via apt in sid), then you don't
have to directly patch your kernel (you can, but you need not do
it...): you will need at least the loop-aes-source package installed;
the loop-aes-ciphers-source are (optional) ciphers.
Just follow the README file provided in loop-aes-source: this
describes all steps involved in getting started, including examples
on how to use encrypted swap; encrypted partitions using gpg-key
stored on removable media etc.
$ apt-cache search loop-aes
loop-aes-ciphers-source - Ciphers for the loop-aes encryption Linux
loop-aes-source - AES-encryption loopback Linux kernel module
