No this is not, "the real problem [...] after multiple revisions"
because I've offered to do this and stated pretty clearly my intent to
do so. But, as I've mentioned before, I'd really prefer to land this
series through net-next, and then after we can turn our attention to
integrating this into the existing crypto API. This series is already
big enough and I would really prefer not to further complicate it.

So, what you want is going to happen. There isn't some kind of
fundamental problem here. This is more of a discussion on
scheduling/trees/mergecycles than anything else.
