The cryptodev for linux module is at:
(note that it may not install the crypto/cryptodev.h correctly, thus you might
need to copy it by yourself).

I will but I need more time to finish this. I might change more stuff.
ABI compatibility on the crypto.h is not really an issue- the new code

I will check it later, probably some header is missing.
