Description rsimmons0 2012-06-11 23:40:07 UTC
The setting listed "-e aes" in geli_swap_flags in /etc/defaults/rc.conf is redundant.  AES is already the default for geli volumes:
"The default and recommended algorithm is AES-XTS." geli(8) man page.

Fix: Patch included.

As of RELEASE-10.0 geli_swap_flags in /etc/defaults/rc.conf are gone and geli_swap_flags in rc.conf are obsolete, the status "In Discussion" should be changed to its final destination.
