Subject: Module load sequence


I notice that the crypto in the kernel dynamically loads in crypto modules.

It appears that crypto algorithms are loaded first followed by cbc.ko, then
crypto_blkcipher.ko and authenc.

How does crypto decide which modules to load. It seems related to the
string "authenc(hmac(sha1),cbc(aes))" ?

Thanks for any info.
