Description

Please use the aes crate going forward. The new repository location is at:

https://github.com/RustCrypto/block-ciphers/tree/master/aes

AES-NI is now autodetected at runtime on i686/x86-64 platforms. If AES-NI is not present, the aes crate will fallback to a constant-time portable software implementation.

To prevent this fallback (and have absence of AES-NI result in an illegal instruction crash instead), continue to pass the same RUSTFLAGS which were previously required for the aesni crate to compile:

RUSTFLAGS=-Ctarget-feature=+aes,+ssse3
