Cryptoloop *in the device mapper* is new.
Encrypted loopback devices (implemented by cryptoloop outside the device mapper) are very old: I remember them from the 2.0 days, and they may predate that.
One question: if cryptoloop is going away, what's replacing it? Is the CryptoAPI there for no reason, or is there some new magical way to encrypt filesystems that I've overlooked?
