Description

We are carrying drivers for a few bits of crypto hardware which do not make sense on current systems. Either due to lack of support on non-EOL hardware or due to low bus speeds which would degrade performance should they be enabled.

These include:

  • ubsec
  • Hifn
  • VIA Padlock
  • Safe

Drivers for these should be removed, along with any code in the repo which allows them to be selected, detects them and reports their presence, etc.
