It is "in the process", but definitely not accepted.

We are just discussing how to integrate paes wrapped keys in cryptsetup and
it will definitely not be the way presented in the slides above.

If you plan more such ciphers, I would welcome some unified way in crypto API
how to handle these HSM keys flavors.

For kernel dm-crypt, there is no change needed (dmcrypt just treats it as a normal cipher key).
(I would say that it is not the best idea either, IMHO it would be better to use
kernel keyring reference instead and somehow handle hw keys through keyring.)
