      crypto: hash - annotate algorithms taking optional key · 8d906d18

      commit a208fa8f upstream.
      We need to consistently enforce that keyed hashes cannot be used without
      setting the key.  To do this we need a reliable way to determine whether
      a given hash algorithm is keyed or not.  AF_ALG currently does this by
      checking for the presence of a ->setkey() method.  However, this is
      actually slightly broken because the CRC-32 algorithms implement
      ->setkey() but can also be used without a key.  (The CRC-32 "key" is not
      actually a cryptographic key but rather represents the initial state.
      If not overridden, then a default initial state is used.)
      Prepare to fix this by introducing a flag CRYPTO_ALG_OPTIONAL_KEY which
      indicates that the algorithm has a ->setkey() method, but it is not
      required to be called.  Then set it on all the CRC-32 algorithms.
      The same also applies to the Adler-32 implementation in Lustre.
      Also, the cryptd and mcryptd templates have to pass through the flag
      from their underlying algorithm.
