AFAIK, this is a real vulnerability that needs to be addressed. Judging by Ted's inquiry about my siphash testing suite, I assume he's probably tinkering around with it as we speak. :) Meanwhile I've separated things into several trees: 1. chacha20 rng, already submitted: https://git.zx2c4.com/linux-dev/log/?h=random-next 2. md5 cleanup, not yet submitted: https://git.zx2c4.com/linux-dev/log/?h=md5-cleanup 3. md4 cleanup, already submitted: https://git.zx2c4.com/linux-dev/log/?h=ext4-next-md4-cleanup 4. siphash and networking, not yet submitted as a x/4 series: https://git.zx2c4.com/linux-dev/log/?h=net-next-siphash I'll submit (4) in a couple of days, waiting for any comments on the existing patch-set. Jason
