Default RFC: pefs - stacked cryptographic filesystem


I would like to ask for feedback on a kernel level stacked cryptographic
filesystem. It has started as Summer Of Code'2009 project and matured a
lot since then. I've recently added support for sparse files and
switched to XTS encryption mode.

I've been using it to encrypt my home directory for almost a year
already, and use fsx, dbench and blogbench for testing. So it should be
fairly stable.

Tested on top of ZFS, UFS and tmpfs on amd64 and i386; both 9-CURRENT
and 8-STABLE supported.

Please email me separately if you're willing to help testing on big
endian machine, XTS code doesn't look endian correct.

At this point all of the project goals complete and I'd like it to get
wider coverage in terms of tests and reviews and hope to see it commited
to HEAD soon.

use UNIX or die :-)
