This says NULL is the identity function, which is not the same as:

static void null_encrypt(void *ctx, u8 *dst, const u8 *src)
{ }

In practice this code never gets called because cbc_process() has
a special case for iv==NULL. But I'd rather see a semantically
correct reference implementation. Or just leave .cia_encrypt=NULL.

Am I missing something here ?
