I don't think that example is the same as rng_alg.generate, it has a
different protottype.

It's not just documentation, every other rng driver returns it this way
and it gets aead_init_geniv() (and subsequently crypto_create_tfm())
really confused because they expect the return value to be 0 or < 0.
