Yes. But no export regulation is triggered by that (whether util-linux is
maintained by someone inside the US or not): the util-linux maintainer will
need a kernel-i to test, but the kernel-i patch can be downloaded both in

the US (e.g. from non-US.debian.org).

on a kernel-i. The "crypto" patch only provides hooks (following a
well-defined API) and can be compiled on a regular non-crypto kernel without
