Hi Boojin,

I think the important thing to realize here is that there are a large
number of hardware devices for which the keyslot manager *is* needed.
And from the upstream kernel's perspective, supporting two different
schemes for supporting the inline encryption feature is more
complexity than just supporting one which is general enough to support
a wider variety of hardware devices.

If you want somethig which is only good for the hardware platform you
are charged to support, that's fine if it's only going to be in a
Samsung-specific kernel.  But if your goal is to get something that
works upstream, especially if it requires changes in core layers of
the kernel, it's important that it's general enough to support most,
if not all, if the hardware devices in the industry.

Regards,

					- Ted
