The only other change is to SHA_WORKSPACE_WORDS - I wonder if some
code depends on the old (much bigger) workspace for some reason?

The git SHA1 routines are way smarter than the old SHA1, and will
re-use the workspace area, so they need only a fraction of the old
area.

Try changing SHA_WORKSPACE_WORDS back to 80 (in
include/linux/cryptohash.h). The git sha1 only needs 16 words, but ..

If that fixes it for you, then it's almost certainly some buggy user
that uses the SHA1 workspace array for its own odd case, and
incorrectly "knows" that it's that old wasteful 320 bytes. There's a
few places in networking that uses SHA_WORKSPACE_WORDS.
