Subject[PATCH 3/8] crypto: AF_ALG: extend data structuers for AEAD
Date
The data structure holding the state of an ongoing symmetric cipher
operation is extended by the data variables needed for AEAD.

The request data structures are encapsulated by a union as the symmetric
cipher implementation is either exclusively used for "normal" symmetric
ciphers or for AEAD ciphers.

The define MAX_AEAD_ASSOCLEN restricts the size of the associated
authentication data. The kernel must allocate memory for this data to be
stored for the cipher operation. To prevent an excessive use of memory,
it is limited to 128 bytes, which is considered to be a sensible size.
