module_id unique ID (hex byte) identifying encryption module.
key_length is algorithm key length in bits.
algorithm_name is a name used to specify encryption algorithm when creating new container, reencrypting container etc. Algorithm name is case insensitive.
Following lines represent a comment and description of cipher named GOST with 256-bit keys provided by module bc_gost.o
