SubjectRe: [PATCH] MODSIGN: flag modules that use cryptoapi and only panic if those are unsigned

This patch is absolutely ok with FIPS requirements.

But I think that patch falls short, because the crypto API offers other
register functions:

$ pwd
.../include/crypto
$ grep -r crypto_register *
algapi.h:int crypto_register_template(struct crypto_template *tmpl);
algapi.h:int crypto_register_instance(struct crypto_template *tmpl,
internal/compress.h:extern int crypto_register_pcomp(struct pcomp_alg *alg);
internal/hash.h:int crypto_register_ahash(struct ahash_alg *alg);
internal/hash.h:int crypto_register_shash(struct shash_alg *alg);
internal/hash.h:int crypto_register_shashes(struct shash_alg *algs, int
count);

$ pwd
...crypto
$ grep -r crypto_register algapi.c | grep EXPORT
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(crypto_register_alg);
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(crypto_register_algs);
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(crypto_register_template);
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(crypto_register_instance);
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(crypto_register_notifier);

So, please add these calls to your code too.

Though, I have one concern that it does not catches all circumstances.
What happens, if a crypto algo implementation consists of two KOs where
one KO has the register function and the other KO implements other
aspects of the cipher? In this case, both KOs must be covered with the
check. Can that happen in general?

Also, currently lib/sha1.c and lib/md5.c are statically compiled -- so
we are fine. Though, is it possible that they may be offloaded into KOs
in the future? If yes, they would need to be covered too.

Ciao
Stephan
