master
======

Review discussions:

rxgk patches:
  - Discussion about CLEAR and AUTH levels.
  - Does it makes sense to implement the CLEAR and AUTH levels,
    especially with no way to configure what mode is enabled.
  - Ben thinks it's pretty clear that it doesn't make sense to
    have the code with no way to enable it other than recompiling,
    so it's a question of do we remove the code or do we add a
    knob to allow the less-protected data.
