Hi!

While reading the fscrypt code I noticed that some functions use the bounce 
pages
and some not.
fscrypt_decrypt_page() and fscrypt_decrypt_bio_pages() work in-place while
fscrypt_encrypt_page() and fscrypt_zeroout_range() use a bounce page.

So, both ext4 and f2fs encrypt data using an extra buffer but decrypt mostly
in-place without the need of an extra buffer.
Why that? I'd assume when decryption can be done in-place also encryption is 
possible
that way.

I'm working on fscrypt for UBIFS and would like to avoid an extra buffer since 
memory
is low on embedded systems.

Thanks,
//richard
