    crypto: crc32c - Fix crc32c soft dependency · fd7f6727
    Jean Delvare authored
    I don't think it makes sense for a module to have a soft dependency
    on itself. This seems quite cyclic by nature and I can't see what
    purpose it could serve.
    
    OTOH libcrc32c calls crypto_alloc_shash("crc32c", 0, 0) so it pretty
    much assumes that some incarnation of the "crc32c" hash algorithm has
    been loaded. Therefore it makes sense to have the soft dependency
    there (as crc-t10dif does.)
