Sure. I'll plan to flesh out the changelogs a bit more before the next
posting.

The basic problem is that we want to use printable filenames for storage
on the MDS, but we don't want to tie the format we use to the fscrypt
nokey name format.

So, we have our own nokey name format that we use that's quite similar
to the one in fscrypt. So similar in fact, that we want to use the same
base64 encoding scheme that fscrypt uses for this -- hence the need to
make these available to modules.
