Default Bug#597658: possible to enable aesni-intel in squeeze?

Reading the bug log I'm tempted to conclude that this problem has been
dealt with, at least since 2.6.32.19. The module has also since long been
enabled in unstable.

Would it therefore be feasible to re-enable it in an upcoming Squeeze
point update?


thanks,
Thijs

While I think this is a worthwhile feature, I don't think it meets the
criteria for a stable update.
