The IBM System z Central Processor Assist for Cryptographic Functions (CPACF)
hardware provides a set of CPU instructions for use in clear-key encryption,
pseudo random number generation, hash functions, and protected-key encryption.
The CPACF protected key cryptographic functions operate with a protected key
which is encrypted under a unique wrapping key that is stored in the Hardware
System Area (HSA) of the machine and can only be accessed by firmware. The
wrapping key cannot be accessed by the operating system or application
programs. There are two wrapping keys: One for wrapping AES keys and one for
wrapping DES/TDES keys. This patch set enables the support for encrypting  
clear keys under the AES and DES/TDES wrapping keys for guests started on hosts 
running on s390 hardware that supports key wrapping.
