I post the results of my tests with and without the "geode-aes" module
once more under this subject:

Settings: crypto-options: aes-cbc-essiv:sha256, keysize=128

command: time dd if=/dev/zero of=xxx.img bs=1024 count=700000

  without goede-aes (128 Bit keylength)	1m40.313s, 1m44.596s, 1m43.717s

  with geode-aes (128 Bit keylength)	36.792s,   37.774s,   37.552s

command: time cat 700MB-file >/dev/null

  without geode-aes (128 Bit keylength)	1m35.057s, 1m36.257s, 1m36.587s

  with geode-aes (128 Bit keylength):	32.546s,   32.656s,   32.653s

That's a considerable difference !!!   :-)
