Right, that feature is underway, and the Crypto team has agreed to
implement it for me. My apologies for being unclear about it. Until
then, a small shell script like the following can be used:

export LC_ALL=C

openssl ciphers -V \
| sed -r -n \
    -e 's/^ *0x([0-9A-F]{2}),0x([0-9A-F]{2}) - .*$/\\\\x\1 \\\\x\2/p' \
| xargs -r -- printf -- '%b' > ciphers.bin

No, you are right; I figured I'd describe the end-state in the commit
mesage. I guess I can replace

  The fw_cfg file is formatted by the "update-crypto-policies" utility


  The fw_cfg file will be formatted by the "update-crypto-policies"

in the commit message.
