Hi Boojin,

We're very keen to make sure that our approach to inline encryption can
work with diverse hardware, including Samsung's FMP hardware; if you
can see any issues with using our approach with your hardware please
let us know.

We understand that a possible concern for getting FMP working with our
patch series for Inline Encryption Support at

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-block/20190821075714.65140-1-satyat@google.com/

is that unlike some inline encryption hardware (and also unlike the JEDEC
UFS v2.1 spec), FMP doesn't have the concept of a limited number of
keyslots - to address that difference we have a "passthrough keyslot
manager", which we put up on top of our patch series for inline encryption
support at

https://android-review.googlesource.com/c/kernel/common/+/980137/2

Setting up a passthrough keyslot manager in the request queue of a
device allows the device to receive a bio's encryption context as-is with
the bio, which is what FMP would prefer. Are there any issues with
using the passthrough keyslot manager for FMP?

Thanks!
Satya
