Thanks goodness, because if we had put a private copy in the
networking or the crypto code someone would have given us a hard time.

Wait a second... we're being given a hard time anyways. :-)

Kidding aside, why didn't anyone show any interest in the patch when
it was posted to lkml? You can say it was smoothered together with
some crypto stuff, but that was absolutely the logical thing to do
because the follow-on crypto patches showed what the thing was going
to be used for.
