Trying to get ecryptsfs on a RaspBMC install and having trouble.

Reason: Ideally want single RPi to perform both as a media center and backing up another NAS (Synology via NFS) to encrypted external USB (only want some of the folders encrypted)

Tried following this good guide but cannot seem to get it working.

Seems like there is no kernel module available. What am I missing?

//raspbmc build/version
pi@raspbmc:~$ cat /scripts/upd_hist/build_info

//check ecryptfs is installed
pi@raspbmc:~$ sudo apt-get install ecryptfs-utils

ecryptfs-utils is already the newest version.

//check for module
pi@raspbmc:~$ lsmod | grep ecryptfs

//check for module to load
pi@raspbmc:~$ cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)
pi@raspbmc:/lib/modules/3.12.21$ ls kernel/fs/
