Can compile the linux Kernel source with IPP cryptographic library?

Hi,
I want to use the IPP cryptographic library to speed up the crypt/decrypt like DES,3DES,AES etc.. in the Linux kernel.
Can IPP cryptographic library work in this way? Or the IPP cryptographic library can only be used in user space application?

I noticed the IPP cryptographic library DOC mentioned the library in kernel mode.
The kernel mode means?

Thanks & Regards

Have you tried the sample provided under Intel IPP sample direcotry ipp-samplesadvanced-usageippsdrv and find the usage how to use IPP libraires including cryptography domainin Kernel mode, also static libraires can be linked for kernal mode.

Hope it helps.
All Intel IPP Samples are listed at http://www.intel.com/software/products/ipp/samples.htm
