Bug#599441: 2.6.36: please re-enable crypto algorithm self-tests

Package: linux-image-2.6.36-rc6-686
Version: 2.6.36~rc6-1~experimental.1
Severity: wishlist


somewhere in .36 upstream changed the logic for the internal selftests
of crypto algorithms from: CONFIG_CRYPTO_MANAGER_TESTS=y to:
i.e. crypto algorithms now default to not being tested on initialization
against the patterns they provide.

While this might be okay for self-compiled kernels that run on a well
known hardware, I personally think (re)enabling these tests would be a
way safer default for a distribution kernel which runs on lots of
different hardware setups (mostly unknown to those who build the

Thanks for your work & best regards
