Thanks for fixing these! I don't have time to review these in detail, but I ran
the crypto self-tests on the affected algorithms, and they all pass. I also
benchmarked them before and after; the only noticable performance difference was
that sha256-avx2 and sha512-avx2 became a few percent slower. I don't suppose
there is a way around that? Otherwise it's probably not a big deal.

For reference, this was the list of affected algorithms I used:

shash: sha1-ssse3, sha1-avx, sha1-avx2, sha256-ssse3, sha256-avx, sha256-avx2,
sha512-ssse3, sha512-avx, sha512-avx2

cipher: blowfish-asm, camellia-asm, des3_ede-asm

skcipher: ecb-blowfish-asm, cbc-blowfish-asm, ctr-blowfish-asm, ecb-cast5-avx,
cbc-cast5-avx, ctr-cast5-avx, ecb-cast6-avx, cbc-cast6-avx, ctr-cast6-avx,
lrw-cast6-avx, xts-cast6-avx, ecb-camellia-asm, cbc-camellia-asm,
ctr-camellia-asm, lrw-camellia-asm, xts-camellia-asm, ecb-des3_ede-asm,
cbc-des3_ede-asm, ctr-des3_ede-asm, ecb-twofish-avx, cbc-twofish-avx,
ctr-twofish-avx, lrw-twofish-avx, xts-twofish-avx
