No, you have not miss nothing.

OK I see your point. I made few changes in the core, killed the alg_list
and its manipulation function and added a .unregister_algs operation.
Now every type of algorithm will handle all core crypto api functions
itself. Also I'm using devm_kzalloc() in .register_algs when allocating
memory for qce_alg_template structures to avoid kfree(). The callbacks
async_req_queue/done are now embedded in qce_device structure and they
are invoked directly from algorithm implementations. Thus I have
separated the interfaces: functions implemented in core part of the
driver and struct qce_algo_ops having the function pointers implemented
by every type of algorithm.

If you don't have some objections I can send out a version 2.
