The new crypto support in 2.4.22 does not contain cryptoloop support,
you still have to get that yourself. And the API in 2.4.22 is a
backport from 2.6 and incompatible to the API from kerneli.org, which
means it will not work with the mount and losetup programs from Woody.
Maybe the programs from Sid support it, but I don't know.
