Linux full disk encryption hardware SOC support


#1

can the new boards do full disk encryption on linux using the AES acceleration hardware encryption from the SOC etc. other boards don’t use it and they become very slow when using encryption and read and write speeds are much lower etc.

Yes: S912 limited to 1200 MHz with multithreaded loads

But in case the scheduler sends the crypto tasks to one of the artifically bottlenecked A53 (4 are limited to 1.0 GHz while the other 4 are allowed to clock up to 1.4 GHz) performance is not that great.
