Thanks for the work, I have two questions here:
1. Could you please describe a little more about the scenario on
how the user could use the secret key for hibernation encryption?
A requirement is that, the user should provide a passphrase(for key derivation, i.e.)
during resume. I was thinking how user could interact with
the security key mechanism here.

2. The generation of secret key in EFI boot environment is
using a non standard derivation method in generate_secret_key(),
I'm not sure if this is safe enough. This is why we tried to put
PBKDF2 into kernel at first and leave it to the user space then.

Best,
Yu
