OK. It shouldn't be possible to have CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_VMX_ENCRYPT=y for a
32-bit kernel.

I didn't know you guys were building a powerpc64-emb kernel, which by the looks
is ~= CONFIG_PPC_BOOK3E_64.

I'm fairly certain that will be the problem, as it's a 64-bit kernel, but does
not have VSX.

OK great. Sorry for the screw up, I'll try and keep a better eye on what's
going in via the crypto tree in future.

cheers
